For more than a hundred years the Nestlers play an important role in the economic life of the city of Lahr. A taps factory, a corrugated cardboard factory, and a company that was one of the world leaders in the field of slide rule and drawing equipment, were created within a generation and showed the unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit of this family. How the descendants of a weaver, with skill, personal dedication, and sometimes luck, built their companies and adapted these to new requirements over 100 years, two world wars, economic crises, and boom times shows this book. Ten contributions from seven well-known authors illuminate the family and economic history of the Nestlers, supplemented by numerous photographs and historical documents.
