NETWORKED KNOWLEDGE

Management of the company is not only efficient but also broadly based in terms of specialist know-how. All three executives have an in-depth knowledge of other relevant areas of business in addition to their own. They have also gathered many years' experience from working all over the world and in different Melchers companies.

                              

Based in Bremen, they are in charge of the worldwide business operations of the Melchers Group – in close collaboration with management of the local companies and managers and experts in the individual spheres of business. Thanks to the culture of open dialogue, the different competencies can be networked ideally and valuable synergetic effects can be generated, thus ensuring a stable infrastructure of knowledge.
