Firmenverschmelzung bei Bauer Resources: Mit neuer Organisation gestärkt in die Zukunft

Anfang Dezember wurden die Firmen Bauer Umwelt GmbH, Bauer Water GmbH und Bauer Resources GmbH zu einer Firma zusammengefasst. „Das positive Wachstum unseres Umweltgeschäfts und die sich daraus ergebenden Anforderungen zeigen, dass die bisherige Aufstellung mit mehreren Firmen für die Zukunft nicht mehr passend war“, so Bauer Resources-Geschäftsführer Johann Mesch. „Durch das Zusammenführen der Bauer Resources GmbH, Bauer Umwelt GmbH und Bauer Water GmbH werden sich viele administrative Vereinfachungen bei der Abwicklung von Projekten ergeben, sodass wir nun mit gebündelter Kompetenz ein noch stärkerer Projektpartner sein werden.“
