Handtmann Group has been sustained by four generations of the entrepreneurial spirit of the Handtmann family from Biberach. It combines a 140-year tradition with modern management. A technological outlook, the requirements of business management and a sense of responsibility to people and the company complement each another to form an indivisible whole. These aspects are permanently embedded in our corporate culture, which we visibly put into practice. It is expressed in top quality technology, innovation and the long-term strategic thinking of a family business that places the centre of attention on the individual person. In the year 2013 sales of approximately 580 million Euros were generated with about 3,000 employees. For the coming years it is calculated on an increase of the turnover and therefore with a continuation of the growth.
