180 years of experience in the advertising market

Berendsohn AG was founded 180 years ago, in 1833, by Bernhard Berendsohn as a publishing house with headquarters in Hamburg. Soon, the company was very successful selling so-called "Hamburgensia", coloured engravings of Hamburg's cityscape. Berendsohn earned a reputation as a source of quality gifts for companies in Hamburg to give to their overseas business partners. In the late forties, successor Günther Berendsohn displayed a finely honed business instinct when he re-established the family-owned company after World War II. Guided by his impressive pioneering spirit, he built the foundation for the business model the company follows to this day: The combination of useful products turned into effective advertising media and personal, local consultations with the client.

The spirit of the founders is still alive and well in the company. Their ideas and ideals still drive us today: Our personal customer relationships enable us to offer our customers a unique range of promotional products for maximum impact and long-term customer loyalty. Apart from the business unit Promotional Products, the Berendsohn Group includes subsidiaries INTERWEGA international Gesellschaft für Debitorenmanagement m.b.H., a Hamburg-based debtor management firm, and Lynka Sp. z o. o., a supplier of promotional and corporate clothing in Cracow, Poland. 

Connecting to new customers & building lasting business relationships

Corporate advertising with promotional items and gifts is more than a service. It is a relationship between companies and customers or between business partners. Thanks to their comprehensive training and close customer contact, our advertising consultants know all about these relationships. And about functional promotions and impressive gifts. They offer in-depth knowledge of the industry, know the region and work locally with our customers. Our experienced consultants know the advertising needs of our customers, suggest appropriate products and help with designing individual advertising messages.
