Rhenus takes over high-tech activities from Simon Hegele
Rhenus High Tech acquired 100 percent of the shares in Simon Hegele Hightech Transport & Service GmbH on February 20. It is strengthening its market position by taking this step and at the same time creating the conditions for further developing its activities. The acquisition is still subject to approval by the German antitrust authorities.
We have been cooperating with Rhenus High Tech in the area of our distribution networks for more than five years now with the aim of implementing technical value-addedlogistics solutions for the customers.
“In a dynamic market environment such as high-tech logistics, it is essential to focus on quality and strategic development and to implement these quickly, consistently and economically. The takeover will enable us to create the conditions to expand the range of services offered by Rhenus High Tech," says Ronny Sassen, Managing Director of Rhenus High Tech.
