The history of the Kurz Group
Family-owned and independent since 1960
Founded by Friedrich Kurz in Gießen. First relocation services were offered. In Solms-Oberbiel, a family home including room for offices and storage facilities was built. Soon, also long-distance haulage services were added to the portfolio.
The industrial park in the east of Oberbiel was developed where a building for storage and offices was built. The company was growing.

1980: our own fleet of vehicles was already essential back then
Friedrich Kurz GmbH established itself as a specialist for regional, national and global relocation services – especially for business clients.
Sold the long-distance haulage business due to changing market conditions.
Bought the logistics and distribution center in Wetzlar, Germany, as the foundation for our further development as an international logistics provider.
