In memory of Emil Hertling

Today, July 22, 2022, the entire HERTLING team is commemorating the founder of our company, who died much too young exactly 124 years ago, on July 22, 1898, at the age of just 59.

Emil Hertling, a diligent, thrifty and at the same time energetic and daring businessman, founded the colonial goods and building materials trade "E. Hertling" and thus laid the foundation for our company HERTLING, which is still family-run today. It was Emil Hertling too, who bought the building site at Sophie-Charlotten-Strasse 15 in Charlottenburg in 1889, where the “HERTLING-Haus” is still the headquarters of the family business.

The portrait of our founder hangs in the office of his descendants, who are now the 4th and 5th generation to run the removals company. It is a daily reminder of the origins of our company and motivates us to continue the company's history and tradition with appreciation.
