Zerbach & Company is the exclusive cooperation partner of NORDWEST Handel AG, Dortmund, for the planning of company succession.

NORDWEST is one of the leading trading companies in the industrial B2B market with focus on the product areas Steel, Construction-Trade-Industry Supply and Sanitary and Heating Equipment. With more than 1,000 medium-sized trading companies as members, NORDWEST offers a large number of additional services alongside the procurement of goods and warehousing/logistics.

Due to the family and medium-sized structure of the members, succession arrangements are to be expected in the future in which NORDWEST would like to support its members. At the same time, many entrepreneurs are faced with the question of whether expansion through company acquisitions can be an appropriate way of securing the future.

In order to support its more than 1,000 members in planning and executing of the process of company succession as well as the acquisition or the sale of a company, NORDWEST expanded its services with effect from 1st January 2018 and has selected Zerbach & Company as a result of a detailed and comprehensive process as an exclusive cooperation partner to address issues in these areas.
