Hans Hess Autoteile GmbH has successfully been active on the market with its approximately 1000 staff members since 1929 and has accrued a sales volume of roughly 140M. euros, annually. Wholesale in car parts is the main focus of the business in 6 locations in Germany. Retail- and workshop customers on the free car parts market, are supplied with over 1,800,000 items by an efficient logistics system, up to 6 times per day.
The company began in the business of piston rings. Over the course of the years, this range has developed into a comprehensive range of engine parts.
The company established itself as both a performance leader and reliable partner for parts dealers and workshops at the beginning with their business in car spare- and expendable parts at the end of the 1940´s.
Today our company is being led in its third generation. Innovation and continuity are by no means, contradictions in this regard. Roughly 1000, in many cases long-term staff members, work to fulfill both the present and also future challenges in the market.
The six branch offices located in west Germany enable us to provide car parts reliably. The internal fleet, consisting of 150 company owned vehicles, deliver the parts.
This complex structure requires a sophisticated IT landscape. The processes therefore cover all stages of distribution and due to the the high level of automatization, permit us to work successfully- from the part identification, to orders and their affiliated logistics, to simple returns.
The market demand for the rapid availability of goods is accommodated because the items are in close proximity to the customer. All branch offices are equipped with large warehouses, with the appropriate width and depth, in order to keep the items on stock. Should certain items not be available on their stock, we are able to provide same-day-delivery from our biggest warehouse, located at our headquarters in Cologne.
In oder to make the most efficient local deliveries to the workshops, the company has established successful partnerships with local, authorized car parts dealers for decades. We have created our concept in order to ensure that our partners are also able to make all services available to their customers.
