HENGEGROUP: the Innovation Group
Entrepreneurial activities since the foundation
At the beginning, the focus was completely on transport activities, leading to the development of the group into a Europe-wide trading and logistics service provider over the decades. New successful building material products and services were introduced to the market by HENGE Baustoff, recycling of building materials was pushed by BSR and our geographic reach extended by O+H Prague. Moreover, our product portfolio was broadly extended by IMEXCO Minerals in the areas of abrasives, blasting media and refractories. Since the beginning of 2017, we are no longer limiting our activities to trading and logistics. For the first time, we are manufacturing our own abrasives and refractories at KOMINEX Minerals+Processing. Openness to the world, tolerance and fairness are essential components of our corporate philosophy. We are internationally structured, decentralised, work in flat hierarchies, and offer our customers and employees quick decision paths.
Our work is characterised by economically, ecologically and socially responsible action. We therefore pursue a strictly defined sustainability strategy
- Long-term relationships with business partners are our top priority.
- The satisfaction of our customers is the focus of our efforts.
- We deal with our customers’ enquiries and problems reliably and efficiently.
- Thinking “outside the box” and openness to new ideas are important cornerstones of our success.
- We treat our colleagues and business partners fairly and with respect.
- We strive for committed and goal-oriented cooperation between all employees.
- We strengthen our employees’ sense of professional responsibility.
- We do not regard mistakes as such, but as an opportunity to learn and improve.
- Our recycling companies are important cornerstones of our group of companies.
- One of our most important activities is the marketing of industrial residues.
- We focus on the careful use of the resources available to us.
- We invest in green energy and improve our plant efficiency.
Our services and products
In achieving our goals, we are helped by highly motivated, well-trained employees who have seized the opportunity in our group of companies to make a career in a future-oriented company. They are the decisive building block and form the most important capital for further sustainable growth.
In addition to concentrating our actions on customers and employees, we also focus on ecologically sustainable corporate development. For example, we source our raw materials and trading products exclusively from long-standing, trustworthy partners and focus on optimum energy efficiency in all our processes and operating resources. In addition, at two of our five companies in the Group, the business model is primarily based on the recycling of used raw materials and supplies – BSR recycles construction materials, while KOMINEX reprocesses cutting and blasting materials.
Thinking and realizing new things will continue to be the foundation for the success of the HENGEGROUP in the future!
Our activities in the Czech Republic are growing. The addition of BES as a subsidiary of O+H enables us to further expand our transport and trading activities.
After 30 years in Saarbrücken, IMEXCO Minerals moves to the group headquarters in Offenbach to further strengthen the joint company activities.

Foundation of O+H
Hans-Walter Henge and Jindrich Otipka jointly found the building materials trading and logistics service provider O+H in Prague. Hereby the successful business model of HENGE Baustoff is exported to open up new markets.
Due to growing success, creation of new jobs and expansion of the vehicle fleet, the original headquarters of HENGE Baustoff becomes too small. The company moves to a spacious new location and group headquarters in Offenbach an der Queich, Rhineland-Palatinate.
After reunification, BSR is founded as the first building materials recycling company of its kind in Dessau, Saxony-Anhalt.

Hans-Walter Henge joins the family business HENGE Baustoff and turns the pure forwarding and logistics service provider into a supra-regional trading company for building materials.
