HARTING – at the top in Westphalia, Germany

Here we feel at home!

The HARTING Technology Group headquarters are located in Espelkamp, in the economically strong German region of Ostwestfalen-Lippe.

Get to know us and you'll realize that "provincial" is just a frame of mind. The district of Minden-Lübbecke, home of the HARTING Technology Group with its headquarters in Espelkamp and subsidiaries in Minden and Rahden, is an international high-tech location that combines attractive jobs with plenty of culture, sports and nature nearby.

We're right at home in this "provincial" rural setting. And we profess this with passion and conviction. Because here, at the Weser and Wiehengebirge hills at the top of North Rhine-Westphalia, the air is healthy and the roads are short. There's plenty of space to reside, enjoy life and relax.

And we are committed to the region, to the people, to our employees, to sport, to culture and to the young generation. For example, Minden is where the striking building of HARTING Deutschland GmbH was built according to the plans of Swiss architect Mario Botta and where handball Bundesliga club GWD Minden is supported. Similarly in Espelkamp. If you wish to experience the famous Berliner Ensemble or the Hamburger Kammerspiele Theatre, you don't have to go to the Spree or Alster.

HARTING is the main sponsor of the German Handball Bundesliga club GWD Minden.

HARTING and the district of Minden-Lübbecke: here you find an exciting and dynamic symbiosis of tradition and modernity, historical yet future-oriented outlooks, respect for proven technology and curiosity for innovation.
