Nordhorn / Leer, 03 December 2021 – CA Brill GmbH, a technical distributor for industrial supplies, welding technology and building hardware, has taken over the Linde welding technology sites Martens in Rastede, Baumberger in Coesfeld, Hoffmann & Westphal in Aachen, Donath in Eschweiler and Hild & Löbbecke GmbH in Bottrop, and has now further strengthened its team with eight employees from the insolvent Carl Wilh. Meyer GmbH & Co. KG has been further strengthened.
At the end of 2021, the BRILLGROUP was able to recruit new colleagues from Key Account Management for construction and industrial supplies for the newly established Key Account Centre North at the Rastede site. “Our new colleagues have exceptionally good and long-standing expertise in the areas of construction and industrial supplies, C-parts management and building hardware and are an excellent addition to our service portfolio. I am sure that this combination will enable us to offer our customers real added value,” says Jens Brill, Managing Director of the BRILLGROUP.”Through the acquisitions and expansion of the business areas, we were able to significantly upgrade the specialist areas of welding technology, service workshops and industrial supplies, while at the same time creating further expansion opportunities for the specialist area of building hardware,” continues Jens Brill. “We are thus consistently following our motto ‘standing still means going backwards’. Now our customers from the Rhineland to the Ruhr area to the North Sea coast benefit from a comprehensive service, various workshop services combined with technical advice and optimised material supply through our central logistics.
Our offering is underpinned by a wide range of digital services such as the freely administrable Brillshop.de (which can also be integrated into the customer’s ERP system via OCI), Easy Scan, cloud solutions for products subject to mandatory inspection or fully digital customer connections via EDI”
“Today more than ever, the dynamic development in stationary wholesale requires expertise in the customer’s needs and processes.
The cooperation with the innovative and excellently positioned, owner-managed BRILLGROUP offers the best opportunities on the market and enables us to actively help shape a successful future,” Tim Hollje, Branch Manager of KAM Centre Nord, is also certain. The KAM Centre Nord is located in the An der Brücke business park in Rastede, directly on the A29 motorway. Further growth is already being planned.
The expansion of the last 12 months has created one of the largest suppliers of welding technology, industrial supplies, tools, occupational safety, factory and vehicle equipment and building hardware with six locations in northern and western Germany. With around 180 employees, the BRILLGROUP today offers its customers and suppliers industry-proven specialist advice and combines this with top service and the highest level of digital expertise. In combination with efficient logistics concepts “right up to the last mile”, the declared aim is to create significant added value through the company’s services. Of course, the family business CA Brill GmbH with all the values it stands for continues to form the basis for all activities.
