Hagedorn managing director Thomas Hagedorn said: “For us, the acquisition is a strategically sensible step in our market-oriented growth.

“Both companies complement each other.

“Not just with specialist knowledge and market experience.

“But also with similar values such as corporate social responsibility and sustainability.”

Johannes Harzheim, managing director of the third generation family business, added: “We are pleased to be part of the Hagedorn group.”

Hagedorn, based in Gütersloh, provides a range of demolition, recycling and remediation services.
