Alfred Engelmann founds the company as a manufacturer of hemp rope.
1920 – 1930
In the 1920s, to keep up with technical developments, production is expanded to include steel wire rope. What is initially considered to be a supplement to the existing range becomes the core business with the growing demand for wire rope in the industry. The production of fibre rope declines in equal measure.
The vom Hofe corporate group acquires all shares in the founding family business. The production portfolio remains largely unchanged until the beginning of the 1980s.
1950 – 1960
Market leader in Lower Saxony for rope and lifting technology for heavy industry, dockyards, mining of ores, the paper industry and the energy sector.

With its high quality products, ENGELMANN very quickly makes an excellent name for itself in this market segment.
