Core business areas are production and trade of charcoal, charcoal briquettes and fire starters.

In order to expand our product range, we included winter products (e.g. wood briquettes and fire wood) in our sales programme. With an annual sales volume of more than 40.000 tons and a turnover of more than 20 Million Euro we are one of the market leaders in Germany, which is the largest market for charcoal and charcoal briquettes in Europe.
Our head office is located in downtown Hamburg. Production, packing and storage are handled on our own ground in Lüneburg.

Thanks to our large production and storage facilities in Lüneburg, our customers can count on our supply reliability for the highly seasonal product charcoal.

In order to secure our supply efficiency and to increase the volumes of charcoal and charcoal briquettes handled in Lüneburg, we have recently carried out comprehensive investments in the refurbishment respectively expansion of our production facilities. Existing machines were modernized and in addition we installed a new full packing line. Furthermore we built an additional warehouse for finished goods on our ground. These investments resulted in an increased production volume and due to the expansion of available storage space we increased the overall capacities and created new jobs. Including our external storage places we now have a storage capacity of more than 40.000 m².

Our customer portfolio comprises all major supermarket chains. Among others we supply DIY markets, gas stations and the non-food departments of supermarkets. Almost 100% of our volumes are delivered either to central warehouses or directly to individual affiliates. We supply from our stock in Lüneburg as well as from external warehouses. Depending on our customers demands we deliver on euro-palettes, Chep-palettes and one-way-palettes. All standards according to GS1 Germany (such as transport etiquettes EAN 128 and electronical delivery notes and orders) can be used by our customers. Today we send and receive more than 2/3 of all documents via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
