Ideas for the future. Since 1873

With the slogan "Ideas for the future. Since 1873", the Handtmann Group of Companies will celebrate its 150th birthday in 2023.

Founded in 1873 as a small, artisanal brass foundry in Biberach/Riss, the company has developed into a globally active technology company with 4,300 employees in six divisions. Handtmann is characterized by its sustainable visionary power and cosmopolitanism paired with Swabian roots.

150 years of Handtmann - Advanced technology in five generations

The company is using the anniversary not only to take a look back at its history, but also to set the course for the future: In 2023, Managing Director Thomas Handtmann will hand over the corporate group to his son Markus Handtmann and his nephew Valentin Ulrich, who will lead the technology company in the fifth generation. In this way, the entrepreneurial family is once again passing on its tradition, relying on innovative strength and the commitment of its employees as the central building blocks of its sustainable success.
