Geis Group has acquired ET LogistikBad Neustadt/Nuremberg/Warsaw, 22 January 2015. The international Geis Group is expanding its network in Poland. The logistics service provider has, with effect from 5 January this year, acquired all the shares in ET Logistik Sp. z o.o. The company, which is based in Warsaw, specializes in domestic and international land transports and contract logistics solutions. Both parties have agreed not to reveal the purchase price.
“We continue to see great potential for growth in Poland,” Hans-Georg Geis and Wolfgang Geis, the owners, have explained. “This transaction will strengthen our position in Poland over the long term.” With its transport and logistics network, which currently encompasses 17 sites and nearly 500 employees, Geis is one of the largest logistics service providers in Poland. This deal will round off its presence in the Central and Eastern Europe, with Geis now offering a coherent, comprehensive network in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
In Poland, the Geis Group has been active since 2006 – initially in air and ocean freight. In mid 2013, Geis expanded its activities in Poland following the takeover of the Polish subsidiary of Quehenberger Logistics which renders road transport services. In early 2014, Geis also took over Logwin Solutions Poland Sp. z o.o. The two companies now operate as Geis PL Sp. z o.o.
Over 43,000 square metres of warehouse spaceLast year the nearly 300 employees of ET Logistik generated a turnover of around 25 million euro, providing land transport and contract logistics services. In total, the eight own operational sites in Bydgoszcz, Jaworzno, Poznań, Pruszcz Gdański, Pruszków, Rzeszów, Wola Rakowa/Łódź (central transhipment point) and Wrocław have more than 43,000 square metres of storage area and 9,000 square metres of handling area.
Nationwide distribution systemIn the area of land transports, ET Logistik transports groupage, part- and full-loads, and also deploys temperature-controlled trucks. With eight own sites and eleven subcontractor depots, ET Logistik has a comprehensive Poland-wide distribution network for general cargo.
At five of its sites, the company carries out complex contract logistics. ET Logistik offers its comprehensive logistics services, including value-added services such as packaging, labelling and return logistics, to the non-food and food industries. All the logistics centres therefore have temperature-controlled areas, with most being HACCP-certified.
No change in the nameThe new Managing Directors of ET Logistik will be Michal Martinovič, Luboš Scheinost, Daniel Knaisl, Thomas Gassmann and Adam Kwiatkowski. Adam Kwiatkowski is at the same time the Managing Director and Vice-President of Geis PL company. The former Managing Partner of ET Logistik, Professor Wojciech Paprocki (PhD), will continue to advise and support the Company’s new management.
“ET Logistik is a well-established company that is certified according to international quality and environmental management standards,” says Michal Martinovič. “It will significantly expand our existing network in Poland, both in terms of services and our regional presence, and provide us with the basis on which to develop the company further in the future.”
