Successful for generations!
Since its founding in 1865, the Eckelmann group of companies has been based in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and has been closely linked to the Hanseatic-commercial roots of the Elbe metropolis. The traditional company is now managed in the 5th generation.
Robert M. Eckelmann (geb. 1950)
Under his leadership, the Ewerführererei expanded into an efficient logistics company in the port of Hamburg and the industrial services area developed into another focus in the Eckelmann Group's service portfolio.
Kurt Eckelmann (1916-1994)
Kurt Eckelmann opted for a land-based expansion course and set himself the goal of successfully setting up a handling facility for containers. In addition, the company was expanded to include tank cleaning and tanker shipping, which gave it the basis for the waste disposal and recycling business.
Carl Robert Eckelmann (1880-1948)
When Carl Robert and Caesar Eckelmann took over the Ewerführererei in 1902, they were constantly innovating. For example, the pointed chute was replaced by the box chute. In 1948 the barge fleet finally comprised a tonnage of 5500 tons as well as four tugs and a barge.
C. J. Lorenz Eckelmann (1847-1900)
In 1872 Cordt Eckelmann took his son Carl Johann Lorenz into the company, only three years later he transferred the company management to him. C. J. Lorenz brought the Ewerführererei to great bloom. He was also active on the Hamburg stock exchange and expanded steadily.
Cordt Eckelmann (1812-1880)
In 1865 the company founder Cordt Eckelmann laid the foundation stone for what would later become the family business Carl Robert Eckelmann by building his own wooden barge. Over the generations, the Hamburg Ewerführererei has become a wide range of service companies.
