Today we have a look at the German company Jungheinrich. This report was accomplished with the help of my good friend Benedikt Balthasar
, who is studying Math and is currently in his last Master semester at the TU Berlin. Furthermore we would like to excuse our long absence period, this is due to the mentioned fulltime internship of Felix in an investment bank and that I had currently moved to Nice.
The forerunner of the Jungheinrich Group was established by Hermann Jungheinrich in 1908 as an import and export firm under the name H. Jungheinrich & Co. In 1953 his eldest son, Friedrich Jungheinrich, laid the cornerstone for the present company by establishing H. Jungheinrich and Co. Maschinenfabrik. After the passing away of the founder, Jungheinrich remains an independent family business owned by the shareholder families Lange and Wolf.
