- In 1936 Wilhelm Kern takes over the management. This resulted in the establishment of the Hilger u. Kern GmbH.
- In 1976 the Dosiertechnik und Pneumatik AG (DOPAG) is established in Cham, Switzerland. Their core business is production and sales of metering and outlet valves as well as vessel/drum pumps for automotive suppliers. In close cooperation, Hilger u.
