Böllhoff Group employees

A family business in the fourth generation

Already in our fourth generation, we continue to build on the success of our founder Wilhelm Böllhoff. Autonomy and independence have always been at the heart of what we do – and will remain so in the future. As a result, the Böllhoff Group is still fully owned by its founding family. We have been driving innovations since 1877, with each generation providing its own new impetus. The enthusiasm of our employees is the foundation of our company's success. Because every successful connection starts with a connection between people.   

"Our company owners are real and authentic. The Böllhoffs know almost every employee and that is one of the reasons we have been here for so long."
