We are looking for you

Are the solutions developed for a recyclable and fossil-free future of the polymers industry? Do you believe that your ideas have the potential to create a sustainable, transformative impact and you think that now is the time to make your vision a reality? Then let's talk about how we can achieve our goals together.

We offer you

As part of the Feddersen Group, we have access to extensive expertise and a global network offering versatile options for strategic partnerships and market access as well as financing opportunities. We offer you in long-term collaboration to develop your ideas with the support of a purpose-driven team and several experts of the industry.

We want to achieve
together with you

Together with you we want to make a noticeable contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. We are driven by the vision of a sustainable polymer industry. Together we will find out how this industry will look like in detail: Recyclates or bio-plastics? Better waste recycling, functioning closed-loop systems, reduction of the use of fossil raw materials through artificial intelligence? port F builds bridges between the tried and tested and the new. We see it as our responsibility to create a sustainable impact together with you.

Your idea. The next big thing?
Let's talk


We want to make a difference. In the Feddersen Group. In the polymer industry. In our society. What sets us apart: Our experience. Our expertise. Our mindsets. We know that we can only achieve great things if we meet on equal terms. All together. In dialogue with you. Towards everyone.

feddersen group

With the internationally operating Feddersen Group, port F has a strong foundation. The group's core competencies lie in the development, production, and distribution of technical polymers, in mechanical engineering and development as well as in trading in machinery for polymer processing. Engineering services, wholesale, foreign trade in stainless steel and other raw materials and technical products are further important pillars of the group.

Today, the Feddersen Group still sees itself in the tradition of its founder as a family business, for which humanity in dealing with employees, customers and partners is important, which pursues long-term goals and attaches great importance to independence and robustness. At the same time, it is facing up to the many current and future challenges and, with port F, has founded a unit that can act completely independently of the core business.

feddersen foundation

The K.D. Feddersen Foundation was established by company founder Karl Detlef Feddersen out of a desire to give something back to society. The Foundation has been operating a retirement home in Hamburg since 1984. The work of the non-profit K.D. Feddersen Foundation is significantly supported by the dividends distributed by K.D. Feddersen Holding GmbH. In recent years, the residential complex has been expanded and comprehensively modernised in several construction phases.
