Designed as a close network of largely stand-alone companies, the Hartmann Group is organized de-centrally. Our companies act independently in their daily operations, as they are highly specialized and know their markets and customers best. Hartmann AG as the holding company unites the companies of the Hartmann Group under one roof. We define the Hartmann Group’s long-term goals and its strategic orientation. This comprises the coordination of investments, risk management, participation controlling, strategic personnel development and corporate communications.
Hartmann AG has an eye for the overall view on the Hartmann Group’s performance and its activities - bundling, analyzing and utilizing data. This enables us to focus on long-term trends in the industry and develop the group’s overall strategy, for example concerning the ideal composition of the fleet.
