Tradition must be
lived and shaped
In 1888, at the age of 25, Ernst Hilker founded a carpentry shop and began furniture production in the town of Detmold, North Rhine Westphalia. Already in 1900, the company began the production of furniture as standard – as the first company in the East Westphalia region. This was a pioneering achievement through which a street in Detmold bears his name.
In the year 1906, the company was honored with the special award for “Purveyor of Court” from members of the royal family.
During this time, the family coat of arms was created, which represents the relation to the furniture company Ernst Hilker.
In 1926 and 1928 the sons Ernst and Willi joined the company. They were followed by Ernst-Dieter Hilker in the third generation and Ernst Hilker in the fourth generation.
Over the decades, the company has developed into a respected producer of high-quality furniture. Over the generations, sleep and dining rooms, modern and individually plannable living furniture have been developed and successfully distributed in Germany, Holland, Switzerland and Austria.
Changing market structures led to a realignment in 2002. Ernst Hilker, grandson of the founder, recognized the opportunities of globalization and developed an international production and sales structure with his own company. Hilker furniture is know produced in Germany, Eastern Europe and Asia and is distribute worldwide. Product development and marketing is managed at the headquarter in Düsseldorf, Germany.
