Security for 150 years. More than 200.000 customers worldwide.

Security by tradition

HARTMANN TRESORE AG is a modern company that is proud to look back on a long history of traditional craftsmanship. Founded around 150 years ago as the Hartmann forge and wheelwright’s workshop, Christoph Hartmann and Elvira Weidemann later went on to specialise in safes back in 1983. Over the years, we have grown into one of the industry’s major players, currently boasting six branches in Germany and further locations in France, Italy, Switzerland, Poland and the United Arab Emirates.

Just as over 200,000 satisfied customers across Europe have discovered to date, our combination of innovative ideas and specialist expertise is something you can truly rely on! In addition to our comprehensive standard range, we are always delighted to discuss individual requirements with our customers to allow us to come up with bespoke safe solutions. We offer so much more than just a safe – in fact, we provide the full security package.

Our security package for you


With high-quality materials and outstanding workmanship in each and every one, our safes really are a cut above the rest. As for their anti-burglary and fire protection, they are proven to comply with current European standards and are approved by independent, objective testing institutes such as VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH or Braunschweig University of Technology’s material testing institute. What’s more, when it comes to our safe-related services, you can rest assured that you’re always on the safe side with  HARTMANN TRESORE, as our operating processes are certified in line with ISO 9001 standards. After all, if it isn’t quality, it isn’t good enough!


“There’s no such thing as can’t!” Our company motto is something we really do live and breathe. Creating a security system requires us to support our customers on a one-to-one basis, offering advice without losing sight of their needs. This is something that’s incredibly important to us! From the first, no-obligation consultation right through to the entire planning and integration processes, we will always be right by your side as your experienced partners. Better still, our customer service will of course be available to you long after you make your purchase if you have any questions about your safe.


In spite of our exceptional quality standards, at HARTMANN TRESORE we refuse to compromise on our reasonable prices and efficient manufacturing processes for our products. We strive to ensure maximum value for money for you as our customer. After all, the ability to offer tested and certified security solutions is something we take very seriously! You can count on it.

Our story
from 1983 to present day

Ever since HARTMANN TRESORE first came into being back in the 1980s, our company has never once stopped developing, with new product ranges and customer groups being added all the time. Today, our catalogue includes premium-quality safes of all kinds for private and commercial customers alike. We also have a strong focus on branch-specific security solutions, including those for trade, industry, hotel and gastronomy, government and public institutions, clinics and care facilities, and the automotive industry, as well as for chain stores from various sectors. We’ve put together a few milestones of our company development here for you to enjoy:




The company HARTMANN specialises in safes and gun safes. These are primarily showcased to customers at trade fairs and exhibitions.



Christoph Hartmann and Elvira Weidemann set up HARTMANN TRESORE AG as we know it today, which is still a family-owned company.



The company acquires its first independent premises in Paderborn. In addition to employee offices and the warehouse, it also has its own safe exhibition, allowing customers to see the safes and gun safes for themselves for the very first time.



Just a year later, HARTMANN TRESORE starts to expand both domestically and internationally: The first German subsidiary opens in Düsseldorf, and HARTMANN TRESORE France launches in Paris.



The second HARTMANN subsidiary opens in Cologne.



HARTMANN TRESORE Italia launches in Milan.



The third German subsidiary opens on Kurfürstendamm, Berlin’s main shopping hub. This gives HARTMANN TRESORE a foothold within the capital for the turn of the millennium!






HARTMANN takes on Eastern Europe: HARTMANN TRESORE Polska is founded in the Polish capital of Warsaw. A further branch opens in the same year in the city of Hamburg on the River Elbe.



HARTMANN TRESORE Schweiz AG opens its doors in Winterthur, Switzerland.



HARTMANN TRESORE goes Middle East: The first HARTMANN subsidiary outside of Europe opens in Dubai.



February 2011 sees our employees move out of what had become the cramped old office into the new headquarters. This impressive new build in Paderborn’s Mönkeloh business district not only offers plenty of space for the team, but also a huge safe exhibition for customers. What’s more, the new central warehouse offers space for several thousand safes, meaning a wide range of products can now be delivered at short notice ex stock. 



Dubai is where our new “Signature Safes by HARTMANN” brand for exclusive, custom-made, designer and high-gloss safes is launched for the first time and showcased to a wider audience at the “BaselWorld” watch and jewellery show. 



Germany’s sixth subsidiary opens in Munich. This means HARTMANN TRESORE can now also offer a local presence to customers in southern Germany and Austria, which has been very well received.
