When he founds his company in 1937, Johann Rittersberger, great grandfather of today’s Göttmann caps and hats managing director, lays the foundations for decades of expertise.
In 1957, Johann Rittersberger’s son-in-law Karl Göttmann founds the Göttmann company in Bensheim an der Bergstrasse. It quickly develops into one of the leading specialists for headwear.
In the 70, under the management of Hans-Peter Göttmann, fashion becomes the consistent focus of the high-quality collection.
In 2001, Michael Göttmann assumes the management of the family company that is today one of the preferred labels for caps and hats worldwide.
Within four generations, the owner-managed company has become established as a top supplier to the high-end specialist trade in the international market.
