Owner-mana­ged. Down to earth. International.

LUKAD is an owner-mana­ged com­pa­ny based in the Sau­er­land regi­on of Ger­ma­ny. It com­bi­nes solid down-to-earth­ness with glo­bal thin­king and inter­na­tio­nal success.

The ori­gin of LUKAD Hol­ding goes back to the foun­da­ti­on of a scrap metal trade by Arnold Mens­hen in the 1950s and the purcha­se of Wal­ter Stauf­fen­berg KG in the ear­ly 1960s. At the begin­ning of the 70s Arnold Mens­hen foun­ded the com­pa­ny Georg Mens­hen KG.

Dis­po­sal, hydrau­lic access­ories and pla­s­tic packaging

Through a high level of crea­ti­vi­ty and entre­pre­neu­ri­al skills, pro­ducts and ser­vices have been deve­lo­ped in the field of was­te dis­po­sal, hydrau­lic access­ories and pla­s­tic pack­a­ging. Today, the Stauff and Mens­hen Groups ope­ra­te inter­na­tio­nal­ly, in some cases with their own sub­si­dia­ries and pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties, or are repre­sen­ted by sales partners.

Arnold Mens­hen suc­ces­si­ve­ly han­ded over the manage­ment of the various com­pa­nies to his two sons Knut and Lutz from the end of the 1980s. Knut Mens­hen took over the manage­ment of the Stauff Group in 1988 and the Mens­hen Group in 1995, and Lutz Mens­hen took over the scrap trade in 1992.

The 3 divi­si­ons were mer­ged into LUKAD Hol­ding in 2001, which faci­li­ta­ted the manage­ment of the various com­pa­nies and made a much clea­rer share­hol­der struc­tu­re pos­si­ble.
In addi­ti­on, LUKAD Hol­ding offers over­ar­ching ser­vices such as the enti­re IT infra­struc­tu­re, com­pli­ance and inter­na­tio­nal human resour­ces manage­ment, tax con­sul­ting, con­trol­ling, audi­ting and ser­vices for the annu­al finan­cial state­ments for the 3 divisions.

Fol­lo­wing the depar­tu­re of Knut Mens­hen as Mana­ging Direc­tor of LUKAD Hol­ding in 2016, Lutz Mens­hen and Jörg Deutz took over the manage­ment of the hol­ding company.

We, as the owner fami­ly, stand for com­mit­ment, lon­ge­vi­ty and thus for secu­ri­ty. By the way, the name LUKAD is com­po­sed of the first names of the ori­gi­nal fami­ly share­hol­ders:
L (Lutz) U (Ursu­la) K (Knut) A (Arnold) D (Dor­le)

As a fami­ly, we are par­ti­cu­lar­ly con­cer­ned about sup­port­ing the peo­p­le who make LUKAD and its affi­lia­ted com­pa­nies so suc­cessful. The­r­e­fo­re, spe­cial atten­ti­on is paid to the area of trai­ning and care­er. The coope­ra­ti­on with schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties also expres­ses this concern.

LUKAD — a great perspective


Inter­na­tio­nal Human Resour­ces Management

Inter­na­tio­nal human resour­ces manage­ment deals with all mea­su­res by which sui­ta­ble human resour­ces can be per­ma­nent­ly secu­red in inter­na­tio­nal­ly acti­ve or mul­ti­na­tio­nal companies.

On the one hand, this is about the impe­tus that HR manage­ment can pro­vi­de, par­ti­cu­lar­ly when con­side­ring whe­ther, whe­re and how the com­pa­ny should beco­me invol­ved abroad. On the other hand, this invol­ves the con­cep­ti­on, imple­men­ta­ti­on and con­trol of cross-bor­der, inter­na­tio­nal per­son­nel management.
