Continuity and progress – for 140 years

“Traditionally progressive” – our corporate motto says a lot about how we understand our work in the world. We are a family enterprise in the best sense of the word. This translates into decisive advantages for our customers: short chains of command, a high degree of individual responsibility, continuity, and the willingness to venture into new territory as a partner to our customers.

BENTELER is proud of its 140-year history of success as a company, managed as a family business – now in its fourth generation. Profitable growth and a progressive tradition are decisive for BENTELER in continuing to ensure its entrepreneurial autonomy in the future as well.

The BENTELER-Group currently employs around 30,000 people at 161 sites in 40 countries.

Organization of the BENTELER-Group
