Thanks to some visionary decisions, the internationally operating family business and the three subsidiaries are optimally positioned for current and future requirements.

Innovative. Today, tomorrow and in the future.

Josef Rethmann laid the first foundations for the success of the family business in 1934. He acquired a rail freight forwarding company and a haulage firm that was responsible, among other things, for the disposal of ashes from households in Selm. After acquiring a call for tender, this commission was extended over the entire city in 1959, and therefore became a foundation for the REMONDIS Group. In 1977, the service spectrum of what is now SARIA SE was extended for the first time with the takeover of Gebrüder Schaap KG. The logistics sector of the Group was further strengthened in 1998 with the acquisition of Rhenus AG & Co. Since then, the RETHMANN family business has united three company branches under one roof, companies which are characterised by innovative as well as forward-looking concepts.
