A FUTURE ALWAYS NEEDS A PAST:
OUR COMPANY HISTORY
50 years of REICHHART
We are taking our anniversary as an opportunity to further develop our corporate identity and align it with the future. The interplay of progress and tradition is reflected in the new REICHHART corporate design and makes it clear: We will continue to design efficient and economical logistics solutions with competence and passion – tailored to the individual needs of our customers.
Founding of REICHHART digital logistics GmbH
Logistics is going digital with REICHHART's own in-house IT subsidiary, which was launched in 2014 in the development centre in Frankfurt.
With the development of its own logistics software motus, REICHHART shows that it has its finger on the pulse. The solution has been in use in Oberkochen since 2015, for example for receiving goods or tracking shipments. Shortly thereafter, the Pliening site joins them.
Establishment of REICHHART's own vehicle fleet
In 2009, REICHHART took a stake in LOBEKO GmbH and thus brought the necessary vehicle fleet expertise in-house. Since then, the Vehicle Fleet competence centre has been an integral part of the company.
Founding of REICHHART Logistique France SARL
The production and sequential provision of automotive components for a French OEM form the service portfolio of the French REICHHART subsidiary. It is based in Feignies/Maubeuge in northern France.
Founding of REICHHART Logistik Austria GmbH
For an order from long-standing customer Eberspächer, we ventured across national borders for the first time in 2003 and founded REICHHART Logistik Austria GmbH, located near Graz. Production and assembly are among the core competencies of our Austrian subsidiary.
Alexander Reichhart joins
Alexander Reichhart joins our company immediately after graduating. Just three months later, on January 1, 2000, he joins the REICHHART dual leadership alongside Michael Jackl.
Contract logistics services
We continued to develop our service portfolio at the beginning of the 1990s and started the first contract logistics services. The aim is to offer our clients complete concepts from a single source. As part of an outsourcing project, we take over the shipping department at Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH in Oberpfaffenhofen for the large aircraft components produced there.
Michael Jackl joins the company
After completing his business administration studies, Michael Jackl joins REICHHART as an assistant to the management. Due to his successful development of the company, he was named managing director at the beginning of 1991.
Major customer STAHLGRUBER
Our client STAHLGRUBER is inextricably linked to the REICHHART company history. Started in 1969, we can now look back on around 50 years of collaborative partnership.
On April 1, 1967, Horst Reichhart registered a business for general goods traffic in Gilching. This is the birth of REICHHART. Started as a sole proprietorship, we now employ around 1,000 people.
