Family-owned business for more than 148 years
With its modern structure and international outlook, the Tengelmann Group is a multi-sector retailer represented across Europe. With outlets in 18 European countries, a network of 4,170 stores and 72,714 employees the Group generated net sales amounting to EUR 8.10 billion in the past financial year (January 1 to December 31, 2014).
Its divisions include Kaiser's and Tengelmann supermarkets (Mülheim an der Ruhr), OBI DIY stores (Wermelskirchen), the textiles and non-food discounter KiK (Bönen), TREI Real Estate and Tengelmann E-Commerce. A number of smaller production companies, service providers and associated companies round off the Tengelmann Group portfolio.
The holding company is located in Mülheim an der Ruhr, where the long-established family business was founded in 1867. Operational management of the Group is now in the hands of the fifth generation of the family headed by Karl-Erivan W. Haub (CEO and Managing Partner).
Ecological and sociopolitical commitment is a high priority for the Tengelmann Group, which has won many awards for its energetic environmental protection program symbolized by Tengelmann’s own “Frog and Turtle” environmental seal. The launch of the Tengelmann Climate Initiative in 2007 is a logical continuation of this commitment.
