The beginning of the publishing house was in the 1970s when Winfried Hamich (1938 – 2009) set up an information service with the aim of collecting and supplying market data about plastic material in buildings.
Today the employees of HIX Publishing are always looking for information about products, companies and statistics which are then evaluated and prepared according to various aspects. In addition to the evaluation of existing documents, official statistics and Internet research, personal contacts and conversations are still an important part. Visits to trade fairs and other events as well as meetings with company representatives are still important tasks.
Today HIX Publishing issues regularly various newsletters and market reports.
