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 2022, the Haniel Group employed 21,500 people and generated sales of EUR 4.2 billion. The company is 100 percent family-owned and has been based in Duisburg since its foundation in 1756.
