Blumenbecker acquires Voss GmbH in Hagen “The right decision for the future”
(Beckum/Hagen) With effect as of July 1, 2013, Beckum-based Blumenbecker Industriebedarf GmbH will acquire the business activities of Voss Werkzeug- und Maschinen-Zentrum GmbH in Hagen, whose managing partner, Klaus-Dieter Voss, unexpectedly passed away in March.
“I am placing my husband’s and my life’s work in good hands“, states Annemarie Voss with conviction. “I have known Blumenbecker for a long time as a professionally run family enterprise and I’m sure that I took the right decision for my employees and our customers“.
Employing a workforce of 15, last year Voss Werkzeug- und Maschinen-Zentrum GmbH achieved sales of approximately € 3 million. All employees will be transferred to the new company.
“Voss’ business activities are a perfect match for Blumenbecker”, says Olaf Lingnau, Managing Director of Blumenbecker Industriebedarf GmbH. “Their sales territory ideally consolidates our own, and while our product portfolios are identical for the most part, Blumenbecker’s is larger with respect to some specialized areas. We will thus be able to offer longstanding clients of Voss an even greater range of products”.
In Hagen the new company will operate under the name „Blumenbecker Industriebedarf GmbH, Niederlassung Voss Hagen“.
