We connect tradition with modern structures
The quality concept moves us since 1925. As a family managed and - owned business in its third generation, we organize your logistics today with modern management structures, efficient systems and innovative quality management.
In the past we have always moved to those places where the Customer needed us. The daily requirements of our Customers are the business of the subsidiaries that form part of the Offergeld system-network and which were established as logical solutions for our Customers’ orders. They guarantee a direct and personal contact with our Customers.
Growth, continuation of our international focus and maintaining our independence were in the past, and continue to be today, the basis of our success and long-term relations with our Customers.
