Research and Commitment
Research & development is a continuous process to which our company is fully committed. Our substantial investment in R&D keeps the Hagen name at the head of the industry.
Research at Hagen entails two main courses of action:
- Monitoring consumer needs and trends to be ready with new products as those needs change
- Investigating and developing efficient means of producing products for improved performance,
lowered cost and heightened sustainability
The right strategy, supported by research and commitment, guided by the right people,
produces the greatest success.
In 1974, Hagen Industries began producing wire cages and glass aquariums. Today, this expanded facility houses the company’s state-of-the-art Liquids Division which produces leading aquatic and pond water care treatments and conditioners. The recent addition of a new research laboratory helps further ensure that Hagen remains an industry leader in these categories. Using highly sophisticated data acquisition and analytical equipment, Hagen biochemists conduct quality control testing of production batches and filtration systems, and develop new aquatic management products of the highest standard.
For over 10 years, Hagen has produced quality pet food.
Since 1998, Hagen Pet Foods in Waverly, New York has produced Nutrience, a premium line of dog and cat food. This specialty brand facility has an AIB “Superior” Rating and Cook & Thurber (NSF International) Certification.
The Hagen Avicultural Institute (HARI) is one of the world's largest
The Hagen Avicultural Institute (HARI), founded in 1985, is one of the largest avian research centres in the world. It houses over 400 pairs of parrots in addition to other companion bird species. Everything learned here about captive bird breeding and maintenance is immediately applied to all bird diets, healthy treats and supplements to ensure they are of the highest quality.
