Takeover took longer than planned

The fact that the takeover is only now in the famous "dry cloths" is mainly due to the corona pandemic. Actually, the deal should have already been completed. Due to the pandemic the negotiations dragged on for a good two years with numerous interruptions. All the better for the Gauselmann Group that all the hurdles have now been cleared. For the Bremen region in particular, the takeover is an important aspect from the point of view of the “Gauselmannen”.

Support East Westphalia in the crisis area

While the takeover is a success in the business area, the Gauselmann Group is also successful from a social point of view. In the past few days, the group hasproved to be a supporter in the crisis area around Euskirchen. Without further ado, an emergency power generator was made available, which could supply several households in the region with electricity. A real blessing for the residents, who otherwise would have had to live without energy for several days or weeks under adverse circumstances.

The Gauselmann Group itself was not affected by the flood disaster. Initially, however, there were fears that a subsidiary (GeWeTe GmbH in Mechernich) had been caught by the bad weather. For this reason, some employees made their way to the crisis area with the emergency power generator from Espelkamp. After it was shown that no intervention was necessary,the Gauselmann Group made the unit available to the local aid organizations. An offer that was gratefully accepted.
