The company

Engels Kerzen – Tradition and creativity ensure top quality

With his successful candle collection, Thomas Engels, Managing Director and creative head of the candle manufacturer Engels, is one of the most notable trendsetters in the sector throughout Germany and Europe. Representing the third generation to lead this traditional company, his management has been marked by uncompromising passion and enthusiasm since 1996.

The candles produced in our Kempen facility have been meeting the highest demands for more than 80 years. In 2013, we celebrated our 80th anniversary. We look back on our long-standing tradition and our partnerships with renowned brands and companies with pride. The “Made in Germany” quality seal emphasise the high intrinsic value of our candle creations.

Candles are our profession – and our passion! After all, candles are much more than just shaped wax. They are creations with a special aura and emotion. Candles have always had a special significance in people’s lives for good reason. They trigger a reaction deep inside us. They create atmosphere, harmony and sensuality.

All waxes are not created equal. Different candles are worlds apart. They must satisfy the most diverse requirements and desires. And this is exactly where our competence and value proposition shine: We develop premium products for you in any given area. Our product philosophy strictly focuses on quality and aesthetics, but we never lose sight of innovations. Engels Kerzen stands for lifestyle, wellness, interior design, gastronomy, and – of course – church tradition and celebrations. Our candles are produced in our own factory, and offered at a fair price.

Based on this position of credibility, product diversity and quality, Engels Kerzen has developed into a successful brand under owner-management since the establishment of the company. Countless sophisticated, satisfied customers from the most diverse market segments are proof that our philosophy is just right, and motivate us to continue catering for you with great enthusiasm.

Where great candles are concerned, there are no limits to our possibilities.
