Information for the trade partners of NORDWEST Handel AG
Zerbach & Company is the exclusive cooperation partner of the association group NORDWEST Handel AG, Dortmund, for the area of company succession. NORDWEST Handel AG, with its headquarters in Dortmund, has been one of the high-performance association companies of the production connection trade (PVH) for almost 100 years. The association’s core tasks in supporting its more than 1,000 specialist trade partners from the steel, building trade industry and sanitary and heating technology (building services) sectors lie in the bundling of purchasing volumes and central regulation as well as extensive services.
Against the background of the family and medium-sized structure of the specialist trade partners, succession arrangements are to be expected in the future in which NORDWEST would like to support its specialist trade partners. At the same time, numerous entrepreneurs are faced with the question of whether expansion through company acquisitions can be a sensible way of securing the future. In order to support its specialist trade partners in both the planning and implementation of a succession process or company acquisition or sale, NORDWEST has expanded its service portfolio. NORDWEST has expanded its service portfolio as of 1 January 2018 and, after an extensive and thorough selection process, has decided to enter into an exclusive cooperation with Zerbach & Company for these topics.
