Especially among our own employees and among our stakeholders, ”explains Stefan Brinkmann. “That is why it is important for me to emphasize that the stability of the B+S brand, the growth course we have taken and the willingness to innovate in future-oriented logistics for our customers will not change.” B+S plans that with a strong partner behind them rather, to expand their own product portfolio. In addition, both companies see additional synergy effects, for example in the operational processes. “I am convinced that we can position B+S as part of the Nagel-Group for the future and develop it further in the interests of our customers and our employees. As managing partner of B+S, I will be largely responsible for this new path. I’m looking forward to the exciting tasks ahead, ”says Stefan Brinkmann.
