Tradition-conscious in a digital age
We are in the year 1890. At this time, Mannheim only has 80,000 inhabitants. It is during this year that the cornerstone for a company over a century old is laid. With ‘engelhorn’, businessman Georg Engelhorn and the tailor Adam Sturm opened a shop for men’s and boy’s ready-to-wear clothing. In times where anyone who took pride in himself wore tailor-made, this plan was bold. But success proved him right. 125 years later, the fashion house has arrived in the digital age but also has remained what it always was: a regionally anchored traditional company. Together with Managing Director Fabian Engelhorn and Michael Stolte, Head of E-Commerce, we take a glance into the past and experience how its future is being shaped.
