Robert Kukla GmbH Launch Subsidiary in the UK

Robert Kukla GmbH Launch Subsidiary in the UK

Robert Kukla GmbH is known for being one of the leading freight forwarders across Europe. To build on the success of the company already, they have launched a subsidiary in the UK that operates mainly in the beverage logistics sector.

The subsidiary, Kukla UK was first launched in April 2017, and began operating out of a new head office which is located in Brentwood with a logistics team consisting of knowledgeable and experienced individuals. This launch was the first division of the company to be based in the UK, but it also thought to be the largest of their subsidiaries in regards to investment and potential.

A number of the senior positions in the company have been filled by individuals previously working as a part of the industry’s leading wine and beverage providers. The new managing director of Robert Kukla UK is Steve Wood, Lynda Simms has joined as the Commercial Director, Martin Jacobs is the Operations Director and Hannah Webb has filled the position of General Manager. These individuals have already generated knowledge of the beverage logistics sector which will offer the new company a wealth of experience which will be beneficial going forward.

The Brentwood based company began work by taking over its German parent company’s established transport business working in the UK. This takeover was seen as the most suitable way to integrate the new UK subsidiary in to the market. Beginning their UK operation in this way means that Kukla UK has an established logistics operation along with contacts in Europe which has allowed the subsidiary to gett off to a running start. Clients of Kukla are immediately offered a strong European network that is not always an option with an newly launched logistics company.

It has laso been revealed that the directors of the UK company have a direct stake in the business. This news is supposed to convey that they are dedicated to ensuring that the company operates as successfully as possible. The launch of Kukla UK is considered to be a fruitful company expansion, despite Brexit, the launch of the subsidiary in the UK is seen to hold a great deal of potential for Robert Kukla GmbH.
