Lettmann GmbH is one of the oldest kayak manufacturers in Europe and today have a huge factory in Germany. It is a family business established by Klaus Lettmann, a veteran world champion kayaker and now run by his son & daughter Jochen & Martina; Jochen is a veteran multi world champion & Olympian kayaker.
Klaus started the company in 1965 and this year they are celebrating their 50th anniversary in paddlesport!
The company has an enviable reputation for making high quality boats and paddles to win competition at the highest level and to cope with the most extreme elements of the sport. Today the passion to strive to offer the best radiates out of the family discussions, emotions are always high whether talking in the factory, in the pub or at 4.a.m in a taxi after a big party - believe me I have been there many times!
