Milestones in the Engelsmann company history

1873 - 1900

Founder Johann "Jean" Engelsmann (1847-1916) came from Bad Kreuznach to Ludwigshafen with his wife Philippine. They take over the millstone factory L. Klein and start with a handful of employees. Sons and grandsons of the Engelsmann family gradually join the business.

Thinking in generations

Engelsmann initially continues to manufacture and sell millstones. Gradually, further equipment for grain milling and accessories are added.
