Grolman and Hob Trade start joint venture
In August 2021, Grolman Group and Ihab Hassan, the owner of Hob Trade, have established Grolman Egypt LLC. All employees, activities and inventories of Hob Trade are in the process of being acquired by Grolman Egypt LLC and Hob Trade will fade out once Grolman Egypt will get all the authorisations to be fully operational.
Florian Grolman, managing director of Grolman, stated: “I am excited to start our joint venture in Egypt. With their skills, their expertise and their hearts the entire Egyptian team fit so very well to Grolman, our values and the way we think as a family business. A warm welcome to our team!”
