Goodbye Duesmann - hello Hensel

monolith from cats
The name may be changing but everything else, including the service stays the same.

Many of us know the name Duesmann well, or to give the full title, Duesmann & Hensel Recycling, but from September 1st, 2016 the company will be known as Hensel Recycling (UK) Ltd.

They announced back in March that Duesmann & Hensel Recycling was changing its name to Hensel Recycling but now it's official, with the change officially taking effect on 1 September 2016, upon entry of their new name in Companies House. From that point on, they will be doing business solely under the name Hensel Recycling (UK) Ltd.

So why the name change? Back in 2014 the company’s owners, Clemens and Thomas Hensel acquired the shares of Alexandra and Ralf Duesmann, so they felt it made sense to change the company name to Hensel Recycling. This is a family owned company, which they feel is one of the company’s core values, and so they wanted to use the family name for the company’s new name. The name, Hensel was already part of the former name, Duesmann & Hensel Recycling, and so it should be familiar to everybody.

For existing customers, the only change that will come into play will be the name of the company as it appears on delivery notes, order confirmations, invoices and other correspondence. All other company information such as our tax ID number, bank details, VAT ID number and the like will remain unchanged. So they tell me you will still get the same great service that you always had for your cats!

Their phone numbers and postal addresses all remain unchanged but there are new web domain and e-mail addresses:
website - www.hensel-recycling.com;
email addresses follow the format f.lastname@hensel-recycling.com - simply modify the email you currently use.
