L. STROETMANN Lebensmittel GmbH & Co. KG

The company

Efficiency, competence, solidity and tradition are just some of the qualities of the Mu?nster-based company L. Stroetmann GmbH & Co. KG, one of the biggest food product suppliers in the Mu?nster area and in Westphalia.

With over 1500 employees, the company is active in the areas of wholesale delivery, bulk customer service and bulk collection of food products, as well as in wholesale of seeds and pet foods. With two central markets in Mu?nster and Gronau, the company supplies over 46,000 items over an area of approximately 17,000 m² and is also a regional cooperation partner of Edeka. Every day, the company supplies more than 100 markets with a fresh range of more than 8,000 items.

The family-run company, which was founded in 1791, can look back on 220 years of history and is now in the hands of the sixth generation, managed by brothers Lutz and Max Stroetmann alongside Dr. David Schu?ppler and Dr. Michael Tönnies. The family involvement within the company is the basis for its success, which is evidenced by turnover of more than € 500 million a year.

Challenges and solutions

Optimised costs and competent all-round support – these were the demands set out by L. Stroetmann.

The recommendation from Seidel & Friends Consulting was to switch provider to Telefonica O2 Germany. This resulted in a cost reduction for several hundred mobile telephony cards. Since then, the employees of L. Stroetmann have had a low-cost, full-flat tariff including large data volumes and multi-cards, i.e. additional SIM cards for tablets, laptops or second mobiles with the same telephone number.

In addition, a VPN connection was set up for the base in Werne so that internal mobile numbers could be called free of charge.

At Seidel & Friends Consulting, the all-round support required is part of the package and free of charge.
