Steadiness, sense of responsibility and fairness are every day's gospel.

For more than 175 successful years, single-mindedness and persistency of these values have been the base of Louis Delius' most important asset: the trust of its business partners.

Relying on these basic principles, Louis Delius goes beyond itself each and every day by readjusting its business to the ever changing needs of the market.



Established 1832 in Bremen,
a port of capital importance
in Europe at the time, Louis
Delius initially exported linen
to Latin America. On the way
back, it took tobacco to the markets in Europe.

A few years after adding cotton and coffee to its assortment, Louis Delius was counted among the most significant trading firms of Bremen.

In order to export tools, machinery and hardware from German producers, an additional division was set up in 1910. Given the steadily increasing demand from Latin America, that division finally emerged into the trade group's principal business after 1950.

Accredited as a market leader amongst medium-sized German export companies, the Louis Delius Group nowadays keeps 18 representations in Latin America and branch offices in Germany, China, Singapore, and South Africa. It does business in 37 countries on four continents.
