About us

Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH manages a portfolio of independent companies with the goal to create value for generations as Europe's leading purpose-driven investor. To this, Haniel aligns its portfolio strictly "enkelfähig,” i.e.: along clear sustainability and performance criteria. The companies are managed based on a common business model – the Haniel Operating Way (HOW) – and share a performance-oriented culture. Currently, the Haniel portfolio comprises seven investments: BauWatch, BekaertDeslee, CWS, Emma – The Sleep Company, das kinderzimmer, ROVEMA and TAKKT. In addition, Haniel manages financial stakes in CECONOMY and Optimar and minority stakes in young, high-growth companies. In 2021, the Haniel Group employed 20,700 people and generated sales of EUR 3.7 billion. The company is 100 percent family-owned and has been based in Duisburg since its foundation in 1756.
