100 years of corporate success.
ADOLF WEBER has a successful corporate history spanning 100 years to look back on.
Adolf Heinrich Wilhelm Weber establishes the company ADOLF WEBER in Wandsbek with the construction of buildings as its core business activity.
The son of the founder, Adolf Heinrich Karl Weber, takes over the company in the 1940s, having completed an apprenticeship in his father’s business and subsequently obtained a degree in engineering. He turns the firm into a building contractor whose name is known all over northern Germany.
Following the premature death of Adolf Heinrich Karl Weber, his wife Erika Weber carries on the business as the first female owner of a building company in Hamburg. Extremely successful in the building trade, she places the company’s focus on residential construction.
Adolf Huckfeldt-Weber takes over the family business at the start of the 1970s. Under his management the company moves into new segments of the property business, such as project development for commercial properties and premium apartments for sale. Professional property management is another business line he expands.
New business lines are added, such as project development of sites for the automotive industry and retail companies.
German reunification brings additional work for the company in the form of the development of numerous retail, service and office properties in the former East Germany in the later 1990s.
Moving into project development for petrol stations marks the start of the ADOLF WEBER GROUP’s successful cooperation with oil companies.
The turn of the century brings the fourth generation of the family into the company: Marcus-C. Huckfeldt-Weber joins his father in the business and now leads the ADOLF WEBER GROUP into the future in its current form as a project development, investment and property management company for commercial and residential properties.
The ADOLF WEBER GROUP moves into new regions to the south with project development for commercial properties now also encompassing the German states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony.
The ADOLF WEBER REAL ESTATE company realises its first projects in Düsseldorf.
The realisation of premium rental apartments forms another area of focus for the ADOLF WEBER GROUP in its project development activities. The company completes numerous residential construction projects in Hamburg.
The ADOLF WEBER GROUP opens its Dortmund branch. With the responsible managing director Jochen Boudon, the projects in NRW are now managed locally and the real estate is managed directly.
In addition to other asset classes, ADOLF WEBER Projektentwicklung increases the focus of its activities on light industrial real estate.
With the ASTOR GEWERBEPARK, ADOLF WEBER establishes its own brand for the company’s business parks and light industrial properties.
Managing partner Marcus-C. Huckfeldt-Weber establishes the HUCKFELDT-WEBER KINDERSTIFTUNG as a charitable trust under the auspices of the UKE-Stiftung with the object of strengthening the company's commitment to society and in particular of supporting pediatric medicine at the Hamburg-Eppendorf University Clinic (UKE).
The southern German branch of ADOLF WEBER opens in Munich. From now on, all projects in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg will be managed directly from Munich by the responsible managing director, Alexander Goebel.
ADOLF WEBER is expanding in Austria. In the new Vienna branch, Managing Director Henning Nietz and Branch Manager Julian Forster manage all project developments in Vienna and the surrounding area. The focus here is on the development of sustainable, flexible commercial properties.
