Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S have chosen to found a daughter company in Germany. The company is registred as Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH and is owned 100 % by Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S.
Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH will open September 7th 2013, in rented premises by RWG Hoya eG’s potato division. Kartoffelzentrum Hagen, Zum Bahnhof 2a, 31535 Hagen, Neustadt am Rübenberge.
There is made an agreement regarding rent of office and quality control facilities.
Director for Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH is Erik B. Thorsen, but the full responsibility regarding the operation is entrusted to the newly appointed operation manager for Southern Europe, Jesper B. Poulsen.
In 11 years Jesper has been employed as responsible for storing and production in Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S, therefore the concept which the company works by, is very well known for Jesper, and he will bring this concept to the daugther company in Germany.
Thorsens Chipskartofler Gmbh’s function is, as a service for the parent company, to take over all logistics and quality control regarding deliveries for Southern Europe and logistics and quality control regarding deliveries from suppliers and other partners in Germany.
Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH will not do any trading of potatoes, instead the operations in the company will be concentrated around logistics and quality control, so the service for costumers and suppliers will be even better.
All buying and selling of potatoes, will still be done, from the parent company Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S in Denmark.
In 2014 Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH will move the adress to similar premises in Steimbke.
RWG Hoya eG will build new facilities in Steimbke for storing, washing, grading and packing. These new facilities will be build during the next year.
Thorsens Chipskartofler GmbH will therefore get the possibility from 2014, to deliver the same kind of goods as delivered from Denmark now. It means washed and optic graded potatoes, and therefore no waste for the costumer.
Thorsens Chipskartofler A/S hopes that German suppliers, partners and Southern European costumers will like this new innitiativ, and it may be an advantage for everybody.
