As part of the integration, the name Hild-Löbbecke will continue to be used for all customers at the Bottrop site. Uwe Kloss, the previous owner of Hild-Löbbecke GmbH, will be responsible for the activities at the Bottrop site as an additional managing director of CA Brill GmbH. “I am very pleased to have found a partner in the family-owned company CA Brill GmbH who, with our support, will bring our life’s work safely into the future,” explains Uwe Kloss, Managing Director of Hild-Löbbecke GmbH, “we are convinced that the bundling of our expertise will lead to disproportionately high growth.”
Through the merger, CA Brill GmbH and Hild-Löbbecke GmbH are significantly strengthening their expertise as technical wholesalers for welding technology, building hardware and industrial products for trade and industrial customers. With 150 employees, the two companies generate a combined turnover of more than 50 million euros at their sites in Leer, Nordhorn and Bottrop, of which around a third is already realized through digital order processing and customer connections.
