About us

Natural sponge processing and more –
A family tradition since 1897

Croll & Denecke, established by Gustav Croll and Theodor Denecke in 1897, is specialized in processing raw natural sponges from the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. With Hanseatic persistence and over a hundred years of know-how and experience the medium-sized enterprise from Bremen has developed into a leading supplier in the natural sponge trade in Europe. Today Peter and Nina Hankiewicz run the family enterprise in the third and fourth generation. Sustainability and protective handling of the raw material from the sea based on traditional formulas are fundamental elements of Croll & Denecke’s business philosophy.
