Family friendliness as a foundational idea…

From the day of formation onward, the Rotte family has organized and built the company with the aspiration that family and career can be ideally reconciled with one another. This aspiration is also reflected still today in the opportunities and the family-friendly appreciation of the employees.

Since 1994, the company has been run by Ulrich Rotte as General Manager and his wife Brigitta as Commercial Manager. Since 2007, Dr. Franz-Barthold Gockel has reinforced the leadership team as General Manager. Benedikt Rotte came on board as the second generation within the company, serving as Production Manager for the first three years and as Assistant to Management since 2017. This management team complements one another through its competencies.

Social Commitment

We are rooted in the region and open to local engagements and local projects. We promote youth sports, children’s soccer, club sports, the fitness trail, the youth shooters and the Salzkotten Marathon. An example project is the construction of the “Menschenkickerspielfeld”, a soccer field for all generations, in cooperation with the “Jungschützen” (young marksmen).
