KLAPP – philosophy & entrepreneurship

Treating, pampering, recommending - these three words form the basis of the KLAPP philosophy. Since 1980, Gerhard KLAPP has been travelling the world, looking for trends that would guarantee treatment success and customer satisfaction. As a holistic practitioner and connoisseur of Far Eastern treatment methods, he is well versed in the co-action of body, spirit, skin and soul. With headquarters in the heart of Germany, the KLAPP Group is a leading manufacturer and distributor in the segment of cosmetic products and treatments, specifically focussed on beauty and wellness. Since 1980, founder and sole owner Gerhard KLAPP has actively been driving the company’s destiny, along with its 180 employees.

The KLAPP Group proudly services 3,500 successful customers nationally. International distribution is ensured through KLAPP-owned subsidiaries, to about 15,000 professional beauticians and cosmetic institutes. Today, the Group services all European markets, targeting beauty institutes, perfume retailers, spas and hotels. Involvement in other markets, such as Asia, America, Africa and Australia, is growing rapidly. In Germany, a strong, service-driven sales force of 50 takes care of our thriving company’s development through sales training.
