The Cortek Group, a company based in the German city of Weißenfels, was taken over by REMONDIS at the end of last year. This acquisition has helped strengthen REMONDIS’ presence in this region which is located in Saxony-Anhalt, close to the borders of the German states of Thuringia and Saxony. This new firm offers a wide range of services that complements REMONDIS’ portfolio perfectly.
The Cortek Group owns three recycling businesses: Cortek Gesellschaft für Recycling und Entsorgungsleistungen mbH in Weißenfels, UMTECH Entsorgungsgesellschaft mbH in Zeitz and Zentrum für Wertstoffverarbeitung Mitteldeutschland GmbH in Schkopau. It also operates from premises in Gera and Pößneck.
The Cortek Group’s wide-ranging portfolio primarily comprises services covering commercial waste. It also, however, performs demolition and remediation work – such as removing asbestos cement and excavating and replacing soil and earth. Cortek uses the various material streams it collects to produce recycled aggregate, soils, bark mulch and compost as well as refuse derived fuels for industrial businesses and combined heat and power plants. Moreover, the company group collects and transports hazardous waste and offers street cleaning services.
One of REMONDIS’ priorities is on being located close to its customers. Having local branches means shorter routes, greater accessibility and maximum efficiency.
Thanks to its acquisition of the Cortek Group, REMONDIS has succeeded in growing its operations in the southern part of the state of Saxony-Anhalt as well as in the neighbouring states of Thuringia and Saxony. REMONDIS has had its own branches in this region for many years now. Its main area of business, however, has involved household waste. By purchasing Cortek, therefore, it has succeeded in strengthening its position in the commercial waste sector. The takeover also included the technology and fleets of vehicles at the new locations.
