Our Story

HIMA is an international network of suppliers and manufactures of Home Improvement, DIY, Garden, Building Materials and Furniture industry.

HIMA origins lie in the European Federation of DIY Manufacturers (fediyma), which was created in March 2000 by its founding members BHETA, Herstellerverband Haus & Garten and Inoha.

For its 20th anniversary, fediyma has relaunched as HIMA International network with an expanded industry mission.

HIMA has a legal base in Brussels to connect itself closer to European Lobby activities. The operational base is located in Germany within the office of Herstellerverband Haus & Garten, the German member association.

HIMA has established connections with international retailers from Africa and Australia through the networking link with EDRA and GHIN.

For many years HIMA maintains a close relationship with the USA Home Improvement market, in particular with Retailers, with Trade fairs and with local consultancies.

HIMA explores Asia by the means of organising study trips to discover innovations from leading markets worldwide, such as China.

HIMA international coverage is also supported by International best practice workshops.
