Following the death of his father, Andreas Möhlenhoff applied his entrepreneurial vision and put his heart and soul into turning the small business into an industrial global player.

The story of Möhlenhoff

One thing our story shows is that a small idea can gather momentum in a way nobody involved at the beginning could have predicted.
