Over 35 years of best connections
It was Richard Luzius who laid the company’s foundation stone in the 1930s. Initially specializing in dry fruit trading, he soon expanded the business to include spices. In the 1960s, son Michael entered the business and quickly made a name for himself in the international spice trade. In 1981, Susanne Werner (formerly Stühff) came on board and the two founded the Luzius & Stühff GmbH. Due to the expertise of Susanne Werner, the focus then lay on the trade of fish and seafood, and later increasingly on spices again. Worldwide supplier relationships were established and have been maintained to this day; renowned companies have been acquired as customers in Germany and are still supplied today. After 35 years of a common success story, the desire grew to gradually withdraw from the running of the business. And so in 2016, the company was sold to Inga Heuer, Petra Winkelmann and the Clou Container Leasing GmbH, represented by Barbara Karan. Already united in friendship – the three partners have known each other since university – and now also professionally. Backed by the financial strength of Clou Container Leasing GmbH, the two managing partners are now beginning a new chapter in the company’s history.
