Founded by Carl Gustav Hermann Gladenbeck in 1851, the Gladenbeck Foundry was relocated to Berlin, Germany in 1857. In 1888 it became the Aktien-Gesellschaft H. Gladenbeck und Sohn under the directorship of Hermann Gladenbeck and sons Oskar and Alfred. It was operated run by various family members and shareholders until the first quarter of the 20th century.
