For more than three and a half decades, Engelhorn led the pharmaceutical companies Boehringer Mannheim and DePuy Inc.  In 1997 he sold the two firms (in which together he had a 40% stake) to Hoffmann-La Roche for more than $10 billion.
Since late 2013, there have been ongoing investigations by the German authorities concerning suspected tax frauds between Engelhorn and his daughters, avoiding capital transfer taxes of up to Euro 440 million (US$475 million). As of January 2016, the family's lawyers conceded capital transfer tax evasions in the amount of Euro 135 million (US $145 million) to the court.
Engelhorn is the great-grandson of Friedrich Engelhorn, the founder of the German chemical company BASF. He is married with five children and lives in Gstaad, Switzerland, with other homes in Costa Brava, Spain and on the Cote D'Azur, France. Aside from his involvement in the family business Engelhorn supports the Reiss Engelhorn Museum in Mannheim.
In 2012 it was discovered that an authentic 12th century cloister had been used as a pool decoration in one of Engelhorn's Spanish estates, hidden from the public and the Spanish conservation authorities for more than half a century.
