Active worldwide

All pulling in the same direction

Founded as a mechanical rope factory in 1880, Carl Stahl is now an internationally active group of companies in its sixth generation.
According to the motto "All pulling in the same direction", the entrepreneurial family has developed principles in its family constitution for the handover to the 6th generation, for which it stands.

Symbolic of this action/doing and thinking is the sculpture "Tauzieher" by Karl-Henning Seemann (1934 - 2023).

The figures prove it: Carl Stahl products are in demand worldwide. For years, the sales figures, number of locations and employees have been steadily increasing. The nineties in particular were characterized by rapid growth at Carl Stahl, which continues to this day. From 1990 to the present, sales have risen from the equivalent of just under 30 million euros to 297 million euros. This was due in part to the expansion of the range of products and services, which in turn led to the development of new markets and target groups.

Through acquisitions and takeovers as well as the establishment of branch facilities, the number of locations worldwide has increased tenfold in the last forty years. Today, Carl Stahl has 65 locations on five continents and employs over 1,700 people.
