Heuking advises HES International B.V. on the sale of its bulk terminal DUHG in Dillingen, Saar
A team led by Heuking Partner Dr. Peter Vocke advised a French subsidiary of HES International B.V. on the sale of the Dillinger Hafen-Umschlagsgesellschaft mbH (DHUG) to the SHS-Stahl-Holding-Saar GmbH & Co. KGaA.
DHUG operates a dry bulk and break bulk terminal in Dillingen/Saar and is an important logistic provider for local and international customers in the steel industry, the energy and construction sector. HES International B.V., based in Rotterdam, is Europe's largest provider of large-scale terminals for bulk and liquid products. The sale of the terminal in Dillingen for the French subsidiary took place within the framework of a share deal, which was signed and executed simultaneously.
SHS is the management holding of AG der Dillinger Hüttenwerke and Saarstahl AG which in total employ 14.000 employees and form Germany‘s third largest steel producer. The acquisition of DHUG is an important step for the SHS group to further optimize its supply chain.
