Hidden Champion Emsa GmbH is an innovative medium-sized (SME) German manufacturer of household goods, garden equipment and garden accessories who has achieved to establish an internationally recognised trademark for a variety of niches.



Emsa was founded on 1 April 1949 by Franz Wulf as „Franz Wulf & Co Plasticwarenfabrik" in Greven.

A little drip-catcher made of plastic and formed like a butterfly was the company's first product. After drip-catchers of different forms the company started producing pastry-cutting wheels, icing bags and comparable kitchen accessories.

On 1 October 1956 the company moved from Greven to larger premises in Emsdetten and added floristry utensils to its range of products.


Against the background of their location in Emsdetten and its main river Ems the firm's name was altered to today's "Emsa" on 29 December 1964.

    In 1971 the new logo was introduced and has been used ever since to distribute the company's products either directly from their headquarters in Emsdetten as well as through more than 50 associated distribution channels. In Emsdetten there are currently more than 250 people employed for the purpose of fabrication, product development and administration.
