The H&S Group is acquiring 51% of the shares of HOYER’s German Foodlog activities, the liquid foodstuff division of the HOYER Group. The existing Foodlog activities of HOYER in Germany will be converted into a joint venture between HOYER and H&S, which will be known as H&H Foodlog GmbH as of the beginning of November this year.
The enhanced service portfolio is expected to lead to operational beneﬁts for customers. Together, H&S Foodtrans and H&H Foodlog will be ranked among the top three leading operators in the European bulk liquid foodstuff transport market. 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 €175m.
Adwin Verhoeks, formerly Business Unit Manager for H&S Foodtrans in the Netherlands, has been appointed General Manager of H&H Foodlog. The company will be based in Neuss, Germany. H&S Foodtrans as well as HOYER’s Foodlog division will continue to operate from existing ofﬁces outside of Germany.
Chief Executive Ofﬁcer of HOYER Group, Ortwin Nast said: “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.”
Chief Executive Ofﬁcer of H&S Group, Ubbo Hempenius 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.”
