Hoyer breaks turnover record
Originally published:  21/06/2012
International transport and logistics specialist Hoyer reports that in its last business year for the first time it achieved sales of more than €1bn, making 2011 the company’s most successful year in its 60-year history. “Compared with 2010, turnover has risen by 5 per cent,” says Hoyer. The Germany-headquartered company says it made its biggest strides in sales in its European intermodal and road freight chemicals division, which saw sales up by 9 per cent, and in its intercontinental chemical transport activity.
“Thanks to strong expansion in the volume of chemicals and foodstuffs transport for the growth regions of Asia, India and the Middle East, sales of the deep-sea business unit rose by a total of 8 per cent in 2011,” says Hoyer. “Continued expansion in Eastern Europe is central to the positive trend in operating business. The region has formed part of Hoyer’s network since the beginning of the 1990s. The newest addition to the Hoyer network is the St Petersburg, Russia, office, which opened in March. A little earlier, Hoyer had set up subsidiaries in Russia and the Ukraine, as well as its own offices in Moscow and Odessa. This further reinforced the international positioning of the business.”
Hoyer says that its expectations of continued growth have contributed to a decision to fill three “strategically important posts” from within its corporate workforce. Long-time Hoyer team member Tom Krützfeldt is taking up the position of operations manager for Hoyer’s Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) department as of August 1. Hoyer’s SCS department is part of the company’s Chemilog chemical logistics unit. Krützfeldt’s previous position as operations manager for Hoyer’s Hamburg and Schkopau Germany locations is being taken over by Matthias Krohn. Krohn was previously a Hoyer fleet manager. Krohn’s position will be filled by Thomas Steinlein, who has been Hoyer’s manager of road continent operations.
“Hoyer expects profitable growth in its chemical logistics activities to continue into the future, but Hoyer is only able to sustain its internationally successful positioning with the help of skilled and motivated people,” says the company. “It is therefore part of the group’s philosophy to develop and continue training its employees.”
