As a pioneer, Hunklinger established the efficient, mechanical paver laying with an excavator.

From the former business idea of "excavator paving", Hunklinger has developed into the world's leading supplier of hydraulic paver laying clamps for excavators, laying machines and loaders. 

For more than 25 years we produce future-oriented solutions for paving, road construction and landscaping. Next to the high quality paver laying clamps the Hunklinger brand is characterised by versatile multi purpose laying grabs as well as innovative hand screeding and paving tools.

Brand new on the market is the world's first wheel-driven mobile excavator in the 2 t weight class, the Hunklinger HW20.

Company History

The Beginning

Albert Hunklinger Sr., becomes well known in the area as a specialist in metal construction and welding. He sets the basics with workshop and metalworking machines and contributes significantly to the high quality of the products.
1966 - 1996

Paver Laying Clamp Type 03

As an apprentice at the age of 14, Bernhard Hunklinger began working with his father to develop a paver laying clamp with fully hydraulic automatic control. After Albert Hunklinger Sr. had built up a rental fleet of up to five mini-excavators over the years, he became convinced that "excavator paving" was the future. The paving laying clamp Type 03 for excavators from 3 t was developed and received several awards.
