We mourn about our senior partner

Heinz Schepers

Heinz has played a major role in the development of HS Schiffahrt and minted the company with his expertise, his way of live and his warm manner.

Up to his sudden death he always was closely linked to the company and he almost every day attended the office. All the time, he gave ear to us.

We will all miss him.

Our compassion applies to his family.

The entire team of HS Schiffahrt
