The Foundation was established in 1959 by entrepreneur and inventor Kurt Körber.
By setting up the Foundation, he wanted to give something back to the society that had enabled him to become a successful entrepreneur; entirely in keeping with the spirit of Art 14, para. 2 (2) of the constitution: “Ownership comes with responsibility. Its use should also serve the common good.”
The Körber Foundation was named sole owner of Körber AG by Kurt Körber and heir to the private assets.
