FehrmannWhat we stand for

Based in Hamburg – active all over the world

Fehrmann is a prime example of a hidden champion: small, exclusive and a world leader with highly innovative products for classic industry and markets of the future. Our aim is simply the optimum for our customers: tailor-made solutions, best quality that endures for decades and excellent advice, particularly on tricky issues like authorisation and specifications.

Our corporate culture: everything for our customers

Fehrmann is geared to giving the best possible support to ensure satisfied customers. In addition to a high level of technical know-how, this calls for agility with flat hierarchies, open doors and a trusting collaboration style. In this way, the highly-motivated Fehrmann team develops tailor-made products and then realises them quickly and flexibly for its customers.

We shape the market in committees and scientific cooperations

It's part of the Fehrmann tradition to play a significant role in shaping markets. Thus the internationally respected industrial standards committee "Ship Windows" was set up by Kurt Fehrmann, the grandfather of today's CEO Henning Fehrmann; Henning has been chairman of this committee since 2006. He also sits on the CEN Chamber on Cast Aluminium Alloys, and has spurred on the cooperation with excellent scientific institutes. No wonder the Fehrmann company is regarded as an example of "best practice" in the successful cooperation with the world of science, while Henning and his father Uwe Fehrmann were voted Hamburg family entrepreneurs of the year in 2011.
