Patrick Osann is the owner and managing director of Osann GmbH, based in Gottmadingen, in the Lake Constance region. With today's focus on child car seats, prams and home & travel products, he looks back on an eventful company history: His father, Stephan Osann, who founded the company in 1984, is the co-inventor of the Maxi-Cosi, known as the "original baby shell". Even today, the pioneer is still on hand to advise his son, particularly in the areas of development and production. Patrick Osann has known since childhood what it means to tinker with a product until it is ready for the market. This experience, combined with his commercial training, allows him to take a wide-angle perspective on the industry and make decisions that will carry his company safely into the future.
It is particularly important to the managing director to ensure safety and comfort for the smallest of customers with Osann products; in addition, the expansion of the product portfolio and, of course, the further development of his employees are close to his heart. This pays off: Osann GmbH was only awarded the title of "Top 100 Innovator" (www.top100.de) in spring 2021. When the father of three is not working on his child seats, he likes to work up a sweat as a coach for the Radolfzell handball youth team or simply enjoy the view of Lake Constance.
