Bürger GmbH & Co. KG und Nagel-Group bauen langjährige Partnerschaft aus

07/08/2023. Crailsheim. The well-known Swabian Maultaschen from BÜRGER will continue to be distributed by the NAGEL-GROUP and made available throughout Europe. The two family-owned companies have been working together for 35 years and have now extended their partnership once again. On the occasion of the contract signing, Martin Bihlmaier (Managing Director of BÜRGER), Carsten Taucke (CEO of NAGEL-GROUP) and the project managers of both companies met at the production site of the pasta manufacturer in Crailsheim.

Met in Crailsheim to sign the contract and tour the production facility: Walter Fink (f.l., Sales Nagel-Group), Jan Neumeyer (Technical Manager Bürger), André Pleines (Executive Director Real Estate Nagel-Group), Thomas Teuchert (Managing Director Bürger), Carsten Taucke (CEO Nagel-Group), Martin Bihlmaier (Managing Director Bürger), Heidi Nemecek (Sales Nagel-Group), Michael Kugel (Managing Director Bürger), Gerd Neuenstein (Top Level Customer Management Nagel-Group), Daniel Weiser (Logistics Bürger), Marco Mahn (Branch Manager Nagel-Group Reichenbach).

“A business partnership that has lasted for decades is very special, and we are delighted with the trust that BÜRGER has placed in us,” says Carsten Taucke. NAGEL-GROUP distributes the products of the manufacturer of Swabian specialties in Germany and Europe via the network site in Reichenbach and the frozen food site in Markgröningen. “What we really appreciate about BÜRGER is that we always deal with each other constructively – especially in the more difficult times, which were marked by crises for all of us. We are pleased that we can continue to support BÜRGER on its successful path.”

The cooperation between the two companies will become even closer and thus more efficient in the future. In Crailsheim, BÜRGER is building a new refrigeration center and a new logistics center. The NAGEL-GROUP will rent a part of the logistics center and use it as a handling area.

For BÜRGER, the cooperation with the NAGEL-GROUP is a groundbreaking logistics project on a closely adjoining area. Shorter transport routes and less transshipment activity will increase product and service quality and save time and, in particular, CO².

Together, the two companies want to further optimize logistics handling and grow. The new building is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2024. Bürger is investing around 45 million euros in the state-of-the-art and energy-efficient facility, which will be connected to the existing plant.
