The Fielmann Group
The Fielmann Group is a stock-listed family business based in Hamburg, Germany. As the most customer-centric provider of eyewear, contact lenses and hearing aids, we serve our 27 million active customers through an omnichannel platform comprised of digital sales channels as well as more than 900 retail stores across Europe.
At the Fielmann Group, we follow the guiding principle of our founder by treating everyone the way we would want to be treated ourselves. We strive to delight our customers by means of fair, friendly and competent service, irrespective of their individual budget. We interact with our colleagues as we would in our family – with respect and dignity. And we understand that a company can only thrive in an intact environment. This is why we hold true to our Environmental Pledge (1986) and give back to the communities we operate in.
We apply our customer-centric philosophy to an international and digital context to shape the optical industry for the benefit of customers. By 2025, we are going to serve 35 million active customers, sell every fourth pair of glasses on the European continent and generate external sales of more than € 2.3 billion.
The Fielmann Group has shaped the optical industry. Our company was born from the simple idea to put customers first when Guenther Fielmann opened his first store Cuxhaven. Within a few decades, the Fielmann Group democratised eyewear fashion, pioneered products, guarantees and services and eventually grew into the market leader in Central Europe as well as one of the largest optical groups worldwide.
The Fielmann Group is a family business. We are convinced that our enterprise can only thrive in an intact society and environment. Therefore, we assume responsibility for our customers, our people, our stakeholders and the environment. We have been active in environmental protection, the preservation of historical monuments and the support of youth sports for decades. According to our Environmental Pledge (1986), we plant a tree for every employee every year. So far, this amounts to more than 1.7 million trees and bushes.
