Arthur Handtmann, president of the Handtmann Group advisory board, passed away on Saturday, April 14 in Biberach, Germany.

With his passing, the Handtmann family loses its patriarch, and the Handtmann Group of Companies loses its third generation leader. The business community mourns a great entrepreneur who was architect of the Handtmann company’s development from a regional foundry in Germany into today’s international group of companies with five global divisions and 3,600 employees.

Much respected by his employees and all who worked with him, Mr. Handtmann grew the Handtmann companies with an insatiable drive for innovation and powerful business ethics based on deeply held family values.  

Thomas Handtmann, his son and fourth generation president of the Handtmann Holding and Management Group, informed Handtmann employees, “Let us all continue in the footsteps of Arthur Handtmann and continue his life’s work just the way he would have wanted it.”


Services will be held in Biberach, Germany.
