Lambertz was established more than 320 years ago as a small bakery in the beautiful
city of Aachen. It was famous for its Printen cookies. Now, Lambertz is the fifth
largest cookie manufacturer in the world, earning in excess of $600 million annually.
With the invention of Germany's first chocolate-covered biscuit, the "Schokoladenprinte,"in
1872, Lambertz was officially appointed the confectionery for royal courts of Prussia,
Bavaria, Belgium and the Netherlands.
In 1978, 28-year-old Hermann Bühlbecker, a member of the Lambertz family, took over
the company. In less than 30 years, he transformed it into the largest cookie company
in Germany. More than 50% of Lambertz's revenue today comes from products that were
developed in the last 10 years.
With 3,500 employees in seven manufacturing facilities in Europe, the company has
dominated the Germany market for decades. Lambertz is currently creating a more
global presence with the distribution of new products around the world.
As part of that global strategy, fully staffed offices in the United States are
maximizing the company's potential in the North American market.
