Last year we were pleased to announce that G & O Trading became part of Fritz Schur Technical Group, consisting of Johs Thornam A/S, Hans Buch A/S, Fritz Schur Energy A/S and Fritz Schur Teknik A/S. The acquisition of G & O Trading ApS was a supplement to Fritz Schur Technical Group’s organic growth strategy and an aim to strengthening the group’s technical expertise and product range in areas such as pumps, process engineering, leisure marine, railway and marine engineering.
This year we are pleased to announce that we have merged G & O Trading maritime business into Hans Buch A/S and thereby optimizing our focus on being a major provider of high-profile products to support the development of sustainable solutions for the maritime market.
We are happy that we could complete the merger as our customers are seeking to consolidate their business with strong suppliers with both the technical, mercantile and financial position such as Hans Buch A/S.
Mikkel Engsbro will continue as Division Director responsible of all Maritime and Railway business.
Managing Director of Hans Buch A/S Henriette Olsen says:
It has been an important factor for us that we have been able to retain the employees of G & O Trading and their expertise, as we see them as key to our continued success. We had set very ambitious goals and will continue to develop our partners’ footprint wherever we operate.
We will further expand our service business and our products portfolio to support our customers’ need to consolidate their business with suppliers who are dedicated to the maritime industry. Technical knowledge, Service and Supply Chain are the core of our business and will be so going forward.
