What do the Saarland and REMONDIS have in common? At first glance, the question would appear to be difficult to answer. However, a look at the Saarland’s new slogan, “Great things always come from small beginnings”, reveals some interesting similarities. REMONDIS, for example, began as a small forwarding business and is now one of the world’s largest recycling, services and water companies. Despite its global growth, REMONDIS still places great importance on “small” regional projects. One example can be found in the Saarland, where its regional company, Region Südwest, has acquired a number of businesses from the Saar Umwelt Service Group – with retroactive effect from 01 January 2014 – once again strengthening its presence in the region.
Saar Umwelt Service GmbH is an amalgamation of Saar Entsorgung GmbH, Saar-Müll-Dienst GmbH and Kleiner Recycling GmbH. In addition, Saar Entsorgung owns a fifty percent share in SWG Saarbrücker Wertstoff GmbH, a joint venture with the City of Saarbrücken which also holds a 50 percent share in the business. In addition to the head office in Kirkel, this transaction also involves the acquisition of business locations in Saarwellingen, Saarbrücken and Petersberg in the Westpfalz region. These new businesses are an excellent addition to the Region Südwest’s existing network between Dillingen and Pirmasens in the Saarland. ”Our goal is to be as close as possible to our customers. These new locations from the Saar Umwelt Group fit into our regional concept perfectly and will help us to get a lot closer to this goal,“ explained Georg Eicker, managing director of REMONDIS Region Südwest.

The former owner of the Saar Umwelt Group, Axel Rösner, expressed his pleasure at ”finding a partner like REMONDIS that is interested in further expanding my company and in securing the jobs of my employees.“ Axel Rösner will also be supporting REMONDIS in an advisory capacity over the next few years. The Saar Umwelt Group’s services cover all waste management activities involving household waste and wood as well as paper, card and cardboard, making them an ideal addition to REMONDIS’ portfolio in the south west region. The four new locations handle a significant volume of materials, namely around 120,000 tonnes, every year.

Paper, card and cardboard make up their largest fraction with the companies processing 52,000 tonnes a year. This is followed by commercial, industrial and household waste suitable for thermal recycling (approx. 35,000 tonnes) and by wood (just under 27,000 tonnes a year). ”We want to unite the potential of the various locations and create synergies in order to further improve our portfolio and provide both private households and commercial and industrial businesses with even better services,“ concluded Georg Eicker.
