History

Since the company was founded in 1951, the Grieshaber Logistics Group AG has evolved into an internationally operating logistics service provider with several locations in Germany and France. In recent years, it has successfully transformed from a pure transport service provider into an international contract logistics company – with a consistent product line strategy in the health care solutions and industry solutions sectors.

Today, the rapid pace at which change, globalisation and virtualisation occur is an ongoing challenge. This makes our company values and a solid corporate culture all the more important. Yesterday and today, the corporate values defined by Heinrich Grieshaber Sr. more than 50 years ago, among them diligence, persistence, reliability and customer orientation, are still cornerstones of our daily work. A productive combination of tradition and progress is our formula for a successful future.
