Fluval is a proud part of the Hagen Group – a family operated business founded in 1955 by Rolf C. Hagen. While Hagen has grown to become the world’s largest privately owned pet product manufacturer and distributor, we remain humble to our roots and are driven by a common bond of love and compassion for animals. Underlying this philosophy is one simple and undisputable fact: Pets are not only the heart of our business, but they’re also the reason we are in business. For nearly 7 decades, Hagen has earned the trust of pet parents worldwide by creating products that enhance the health and welfare of animals with quality, safety, and reliability in mind.
