Passionate about our business

For us, passion for trading is simply in the genes. The small family business established by the brothers Carl and Heinrich Heinemann in 1879 has developed over four generations into a major distributor and retailer for the international travel retail market. 

Today we supply an ever-expanding Duty Free range of global branded goods to international airports, airlines, cruise liners and border shops in 100-plus countries. The categories include perfumes and cosmetics, wines and spirits, confectionery, delicacies and much more. Our retail operation now serves more than 30 million customers annually. Despite our international profile, however, one thing has not changed: we continue to uphold our family values to this day.
