Freinberg, June 2017

With an international organization in 19 countries so far and a network of more than 350 service centers, last year the Schwarzmüller Group achieved a turnover of 342 million euros with a 10 per cent increase. With Nooteboom Trading, Schwarzmüller gained an important partner on an interesting market with its product portfolio and volume, Rudolf Schmid, regional director West, explained the decision for the new cooperation.

Nooteboom Trading BV is owned and directed by Igmar Nooteboom and has been in family ownership since it´s foundation. With its own brand Rino Trailer, the importer sets the focal points on the heavy goods transports for the construction and transport industry as well as used vehicles on international markets. Furthermore, Nooteboom Trading gained a Europe-wide reputation especially with its large rental fleet for special transports. The product portfolios of Schwarzmüller and Nooteboom complement each other excellently for our local market, Igmar Nooteboom is delighted to say. The company, located in Zeewolde, has a comprehensive network especially in the construction industry and has now intensified the distribution network for Schwarzmüller vehicles.
