Hoyer Group and H&S Group have joined forces to set up a joint venture in the bulk liquid food transport sector as the H&S Group acquires 51 per cent of Hoyer’s German Foodlog activities.
As of 1 November 2017, the existing Foodlog activities of Hoyer in Germany will be converted into H&H Foodlog, a joint venture between Hoyer and H&S.
The new liquid food operation has up to 350 employees, 1,600 specialised bulk tank containers, 175 road tankers, 200 trucks and an expected annual turnover of about €175 million.
Adwin Verhoeks, who worked as Business Unit Manager for H&S Foodtrans in the Netherlands, has been appointed future General Manager of H&H Foodlog.
The company will be based in Neuss, Germany.
“Our aim is to provide the best possible service to our customers. This means high standards as well as comprehensive coverage. The step to join forces will support this target,” said Ortwin Nast, Chief Executive Officer of Hoyer Group.
Ubbo Hempenius, Chief Executive Officer of H&S Group, said, “We are very pleased with this joint venture. H&H Foodlog enormously increases our effectiveness, and therefore enables us to be the logistics partner for our large European customers.”
