The production of pairs of charged Higgs bosons as predicted by the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) via the gluon fusion mechanism is investigated. The amplitudes at the leading one-loop order for the parton process $gg \to H^+H^-$ are calculated with the complete set of MSSM particles. Numerical results are presented for the cross section of the inclusive hadron process $p p \to gg \to H^+ H^- + X$ at the LHC.
