History

We are leading our company into the fourth generation as a family business.

Reliably, responsibly and competently: that is how the family has been operating its companies for over a hundred years. Its goal has been to ensure high quality standards in all areas and to guarantee customer satisfaction at all times.

This has allowed the company to continue to grow and to establish itself as a medium-sized, family-owned company - one of the main pillars of the German economy.

In 1954, Heinrich Nagel, the third-generation head of the company, founded Heinrich Nagel KG (GmbH & Co.), a Hamburg-based trading company. This successful industrialist had the idea of placing the raw material recovered from the rendering plant founded in 1912 onto the international Hamburg markets. This ensured the independence and flexibility of the company in a continually evolving market.
