Charismatic Company – Strategic, Dynamic, Authentic.

Our Group has been built by four generations of entrepreneurial spirit of the Handtmann family from Biberach, Germany. It combines a 140-year tradition with modern management. A technological outlook, the understanding 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. Representing the fourth generation of the Handtmann family, Thomas Handtmann took over responsibility in 1998 and is shaping the future of the company in the same spirit. At the time the company had about 1500 employees. The members of the fifth generation, 17 in number, are currently being prepared to assume responsibility according to interest and aptitude in the operations of the corporate group. A family charter outlines the basis for approval in such cases.

Autonomous management structures are established in a decentralised organisation in six divisions. At the head of the Group, a holding company with an Advisory Board acts as the management, financing and holding company.

The six divisions of Handtmann are as follows:

  • Filling & portioning systems
  • Light-metal casting
  • Machining centers
  • Plastics engineering
  • System engineering
  • Plant engineering
