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.

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.
