The consortium has grown continuously over the past decades. It has maintained its friendly family character to this day. From the very beginning, the aim has been to maintain good cooperation and a confident partnership with the agricultural sector. This is based on excellent service and sustainable, trusting cooperation. The company could not continue on its own farm – despite numerous office containers. After 49 years a new location was created for essential parts. On the L 810, on the outskirts of Nordkirchen, in the best traffic location, a modern logistics centre was built in 2018 on a five hectare site. From this new company headquarters, the dynamically growing family business serves growers and fatteners throughout Germany and neighbouring countries. The family character is culture in the company: “We move things! This is not just a slogan, it is also the programme. Within the family workspace and also outside. The recipe for success is the identification of employees with their employer and that of customers with the Venneker Group. More than 200 employees work there: business people, IT specialists, logistics experts, freight forwarders, professional drivers, mechanics, trainees and field staff. “Our staff is our greatest asset,” says owner Albert Venneker. “We invest not only in training and further education, but also in the best working conditions. This applies to our administration and commercial department as well as to our drivers!” The third generation has already gained a foothold: Nils Venneker studied business administration, has been with the company since 2017 and manages the buying and selling. As a livestock marketer, Venneker is the market leader in the industry and always available: 24 hours a day, around the clock. Seven days a week.
