Today, it is the fourth generation of Engels who run the business. “Working here is part of our DNA; it’s a lifestyle, it’s not really work. My dad and his sister, who are both in their 80s, still come in for a visit to check on me and my two brothers,” explains John Engel, managing director of F. Engel. F. Engel has since its establishment in 1927 become one of Europe’s most prominent producers of workwear, for both the construction industry and the services industry. Due to the family’s own interest in hunting, they also created a hunting brand, which today provides exquisite outdoor wear. All of this means that F. Engel today has three brands to its name: Engel workwear, Sunwill and Deerhunter.
