Independently and family run
The name HANSA‑FLEX has stood for quality and innovation since 1962. Even as a globally active company with worldwide expansion and an ever-increasing product portfolio, HANSA‑FLEX still is – and will always view itself as – a family business. The strategic management of the company is in the hands of the three-member board of directors, headed by Thomas Armerding, son of the company’s founder, Joachim Armerding.
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Thomas Armerding has been managing the HANSA‑FLEX company since the mid 1990s. A banker by trade, he is the son of the company’s founder, Joachim Armerding. He joined the company as a trainee in 1986 and has worked in all departments at the Bremen headquarters. In 1989 he was appointed branch manager in Oldenburg. He then became a managing director together with Uwe Buschmann in 1994. The establishment and expansion of HANSA‑FLEX on the international stage is largely due to his initiative.
