Behind profikiel.wordpress.com there is a familiy company established more than 100 years ago – in 1898. Read here how the shop for handtrucks became the shop for house, garden and leisure that it is today.
On January the second Hinrich Kiel overtakes a mobile business from his father for 1,000 Reichsmark and becomes self-employed in the business for handtrucks on the station in Bordesholm.
The oldest son, Hans Kiel, is born and will later become the new managing director. He undertakes an apprenticeship to become a hardware retale trader in Segeberg.

To guarantee our customers a wider and more professional range of products in a modern environment, we have decided in 2013/2014 to pull down the old building and build an all new shop at the same location. This way we ensure state-of-the-art shopping.
The shop Profi Kiel offers a wide spectrum of products. You can find everything, from wood to building material, sanitary items and hardware up to the right tools for every use.
