A new generation at the helm

Andreas Möhlenhoff

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.

Today, as in the past, our workforce’s goal is to live up to the mission and goal declared by the former shareholder and CEO each and every day:


We’ll delight our customers and partners with a range of innovative Möhlenhoff products. At the same time we want to surpass their desire for convenience, engineering and design and stick in their minds as a company with durable, high-quality products”.
