Even the company founder Hellmut Barthel stood wholeheartedly for responsible entrepreneurship.
Thrift and being of help were guiding principles that were reflected in a humble lifestyle, entrepreneurial courage and the joy that occasional generosity would bring.
Today's corporate management is also committed to the principle that industry and commerce must contribute to sustainable development beyond legal requirements. In everyday operations, workplace safety, the health of our employees and the responsible use of resources are of primary importance.
Through the Barthel Foundation we give part of the company's proceeds back for the benefit of society and to support cultural diversity.
