Introduction to NYH AG

Founded in 1871, and one of the oldest German companies to be limited by shares, the New-York Hamburger Gummi-Waaren Compagnie AG is a company with global operations employing close to 130 employees whose core area of expertise consists in the development and manufacture of state-of-the-art hard rubber, soft rubber and plastic moulded parts.

Our close cooperation with customers engaged in the automotive, aviation and music industries and in mechanical engineering yields customised technical components.

Furthermore, for over 140 years, NYH AG has been manufacturing premium-quality ebonite (natural rubber) combs and hair tools. Our Hercules Sägemann combs are the most frequently used items in hairdressing salons, and are an important hair care product for any household. The trademark is rendered in genuine gold leaf and is synonymous with extraordinary quality: If you read the golden lettering "Hercules Sägemann" on a glossy, jet black comb, you can be sure that you are holding in your hands one of the fine ebonite combs manufactured by the New-York Hamburger Gummi-Waaren Compagnie AG. Since 1856, these hairstyling masterpieces have been produced in a 35-stage, predominantly manual, process using traditional machines.

Until 2009, NYH carried out is manufacturing operations at the Hamburg-Harburg site. In 2009, production relocated to a modern new-build in Lüneburg. Being directly connected to the A39 and located by Lüneburg Harbour, NYH AG is an attractive partner for customers at home and abroad.
