Our story

A tradition since 1777

Since our reorganisation in 1971 through the merger of the long-established companies George Hesse and C.André & Co., we have been a reliable partner in the international import and export business. Our roots go back to the 18th century, when Hans Georg Hesse began trading in cotton and working as a merchant in Hamburg. This wealth of experience still characterises our business today.

With the takeover of KOCH Consulting + Export GmbH & Co. KG in 2006, we expanded our technical department in the automotive industry.

At Hesse, André & Co. the customer takes centre stage. We offer you customised solutions and an individual service that meets your specific needs. Trust in our decades of experience and let us be successful together.
