Solid Roots in the Past – Committed to the Future
The origins of the HMS Group can be traced back to seven Ship Suppliers, all of which have been active from the beginning in all kinds of ships’ supplies and related services to the international shipping industry.
In 1851, Schaar & Niemeyer was established in Hamburg - the traditional gateway to the world. Nevertheless, the globalisation of modern trade required a second base in the Far East which was established in 1993. For all companies tradition always meant a step into the future, being committed to the requirements of our customers, using cutting-edge technologies in order to satisfy and exceed their expectations.
Backed by a Strong Owner-Operated Shareholder
Pooling together in 2008 under the roof of a strong and owner-operated shareholder, however, was a logical step and created an even more effective and powerful organisation. Today, the HMS Group has full access to an impressive assortment of food and beverages and stat-of-the-art warehouse and logistics facilities.
