Company history

After the end of the Second World War in 1945, General Schmittlein , head of the Education publique of the French occupying powers in Germany, founded the Lehrmittel-Verlag Offenburg-Mainz.

In 1948 the partners Aengeneyndt, Erwin Burda , Franz Burda and Werner Schmeil took over the publishing house. At that time, Lehrmittel-Verlag Offenburg covered the entire needs of the French occupation zone for teaching and learning materials. Karl Mildenberger, who heads the publishing house as authorized signatory, acquired all shares in the company in 1953 and subsequently the publishing house changed its name to Karl Mildenberger Verlag GmbH. In 1967 his son Dieter († 2013) took over the business. Frank Mildenberger, the grandson of the company founder, has been the sole shareholder and managing director since the beginning of 2009.
