About LANDMANN

LANDMANN is one of the leading European barbecue brands and is active worldwide with its own sales and buying companies, in addition to Europe, among others, also in the United States, Australia and China.

With the marketing of Canadian barbecue equipment, in 1966 the company’s founders already laid the foundation stone for the barbecue boom in Germany. The company started its international expansion from the company’s headquarters in Osterholz-Scharmbeck near Bremen.

With its product range the company demonstrates how innovative the industry can be. Today LANDMANN stands more than ever before for BBQ diversity, in equipment as well as accessories. Under the umbrella of a strong brand, LANDMANN creates experience-oriented barbecue worlds, tailored to the lifestyle of the various consumer groups – Your World of BBQ.

LANDMANN was founded in 1966 in Osterholz-Scharmbeck. Here, at the gates of the Hanseatic city of Bremen, is where we have been concentrating on the world of barbecuing for over 40 years. LANDMANN was the first company to introduce barbecuing equipment to the German market on a large scale. Since then barbecuing has become one of the most popular leisure activities around. This makes LANDMANN a co-founder of a trend that is enjoying increasing popularity across all social classes.

From humble beginnings LANDMANN has become one of Europe’s largest suppliers around the theme of barbecuing and life in the garden. Despite its international activities, however, LANDMANN has always remained true to its Hanseatic roots.

LANDMANN is still an entirely family-owned company. Our main concern is to maintain the sustainable development of the company for the future in order to fulfill our responsibility to our customers, our business partners and our employees.

LANDMANN is on four continents with 15 sales companies in more than 35 countries actively. And we have been on the market for a while: LANDMANN Scandinavia AB, can already look back at a more than 25-year-old distribution experience.
