First Generation
(Tenth From Marcus the Elder)

1. Johann Friedrich ENGELHORN (parents)was born 17 Jul 1821 in Mannheim. He died 11 Mar1902 in Mannheim, Baden, Germany.

Until age 14 Friedrich attended school in his home town of Mannheim. Because of his father’s property loss and ill fortune, he became an apprentice to the goldsmith and watchmaker Goehring.

After three years of apprenticeship he traveled extensively in Europe. By 1840 he had returned to Mannheim and started his own goldsmith business. He was admitted to the guild on 14 November 1846. Through an Englishman living in the Engelhorn home in 1847 he had an idea to establish a limited partnership to produce and distribute gas with the Gas apparatus company, C.L. Koester and Smyers-Williquet. The enterprise was launched 1 October 1848 in Jungbusch under the name Engelhorn & Co.

The town of Mannheim developed a project for its own municipal gas lighting. In 1851construction of a gas works was transferred to Engelhorn in partnership with gas contractors Spreng and Sonntag of Karlsruhe under the company name of Gas Lighting Company of Baden. Friedrich became the technical manager and head of merchandising for the operation.

It was only a small step from gas production to the manufacture of coal tar dyes. Friedrich wanted to participate in the fabulous success of the new analine dyes now coming into use in Germany. In 1861 Engelhorn joined with Dr. Carl Clemm in association with gas contractor Sonntag and Mannheim merchant Otto Dyckerhoff to establish a corporation for the production of analine and tar dyes; Chemical Manufacturers Dyckerhoff, Clemm and Company of Mannheim. The name was changed in 1863 to Sonntag, Engelhorn, and Clemm.

Three years later, in 1865, a new joint stock company was formed; Badische Analine und Soda Fabrik, (BASF) with Engelhorn as its first director, a position he held until 1883. In 1883 he was given the honorary title of Kommerzienrat of the Kingdom of Bavaria.

Friedrich Engelhorn was a co-founder of the Rheinischen Mortgage Bank, the Rheinischen Credit Bank, and the Mannheim Rubber, Gutapercha and Asbestos Factory. He served on the boards of directors of several companies and was instrumental in the development of several sub-divisions in Mannheim.
