Press release from: Rhiem Services GmbH

From small print shop to global fulfilment service provider: a success story “made in Germany”.

Voerde, 14 August 2008 - The RHIEM Group, an owner-run fulfilment service provider with headquarters in Voerde, celebrates its 50th anniversary this summer. What began in 1958 as a print shop in a house in Duisburg-Walsum, has developed within half a century into a worldwide service provider with collaborative partnerships in North America, Asia and Europe. In time for the company’s anniversary, a new 7,000 square-metre hall was acquired at the company’s headquarters in Voerde, to create space for further expansion.
The company’s roots lie in the printing firm founded by Franz Rhiem Sr. in 1958 in Duisburg-Walsum. Initially, the company worked in pre-press, supplying local printers. To make itself more independent and to set the course for further growth, Franz Rhiem invested in his own printing presses and transferred the company’s headquarters to Voerde. The risk paid off, with RHIEM Druck quickly becoming a prosperous company, moving into further areas, such as print processing. At the start of the 1990s, the emerging IT industry was the stimulus for RHIEM to offer its customers warehousing facilities and to provide product-related services, such as packing and, later on, blister-pack and software-box manufacture. The first customers in this area included Peter Norton, whose products were later absorbed by software giant Symantec, and Intuit UK, a subsidiary of Californian software company Intuit Inc.
„I remember this transition well, Rhiem have grown consistently over the years. Key to this growth is their innovative approach to business and the needs of their customers. I am proud that Intuit’s input has contributed to Rhiem’s great success“, said John Walker, Head of Service & Fulfilment at Intuit, „Congratulations for reaching this great milestone and all the best for the next 50 years to the whole RHIEM team.“
In the mid-nineties, the Group’s management passed to the next generation. Under Franz Rhiem Jr. and Dr Stefan Rhiem, the company has undergone a gradual development from European printing firm to competitive service provider, active in the global arena.”
„During the past decades our company has continuously grown and developed to meet our customers’ needs“, comments Dr. Stefan Rhiem, President & CEO at RHIEM. „Our customers have provided us with valuable input and support for our growth. Our goal has always been to supply today, the services our customers need for tomorrow
