Our History

At the beginning of the 20th century Margret and Heinrich Diehl probably never imagined their small German enterprise would one day be operating worldwide, reaching from Mexico to China. The small family-run foundry started business in Nuremberg in 1902, manufacturing fittings and castings for tombstones and other purposes – and quickly grew to a prospering industrial company. The couple’s son, Karl Diehl, significantly promoted the expansion of the business to a technology-driven enterprise with Business Units all over the world.

Today, Diehl is a family-owned company group with five Corporate Divisions, generating a turnover of about € 3 billion worldwide.
