EuroQ takes over logistics service provider HL Logistics in Saarwellingen

Effective from 1.8.2018, EuroQ took over the logistics service provider HL Logistics in Saarwellingen near Saarlouis. HL Logistics supplies individual lean supply chain solutions for the automotive industry. This perfectly complements the automotive-specific portfolio of EuroQ and establishes a new business segment.

Shortly after the opening of a new branch in Wolfsburg, EuroQ announces another growth step, this time through a company acquisition in Saarland. HL Logistics, which formerly belonged to Emendo Partners in Munich, is a contract logistics provider whose services include assembly services as well as quality checks, sequencing and just-in-time (JIT) and just-in-sequence (JIS) deliveries for the Saarlouis-based Ford plant and their suppliers.

EuroQ is known for its wide range of quality assurance services going far beyond the standard offer of many competitors. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, EuroQ has internationally grown to more than 1000 employees. With the acquisition of HL logistics, EuroQ takes a next step forward.

“HL's offer is also very interesting for us at other locations, as these specific services are more and more required by our customers," says Marcus Scholz, one of the owners and managing directors of EuroQ.

With the takeover, EuroQ is now expanding its service portfolio and can simultaneously intensify and continue its own QS activities which started in Saarlouis already at the new premises in 2018.

 "Of course, we keep the jobs of the 65 employees who have built and sequenced door modules and components for Ford up to now. With this acquisition, we will continue to expand our local business and look forward to being active in logistics. This new business field perfectly fits in with our service portfolio, which we will offer in Saarlouis soon, "said Christof Zuber, also owner and managing director of EuroQ.
