The construction company “Karl Ahrens” was founded in Walsrode in 1903. The company’s founder worked with a team of 100 full-time employees to create impressive structures like the Kolkbrücke Bridge in Walsrode and the Wolff & Co. administration building in Bomlitz. Following his death, his sons Karl and Friedrich successfully took over the family business.
Ahrens is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the Matthäi Group that specialises in the transport and trading of building materials. The company’s administrative headquarters in Stadthagen are complemented by its branches in Bremen, Rotenburg, Stadthagen (Lower Saxony) and Brößnitz (Saxony). Our diverse fleet of over 100 vehicles makes us a strong partner for the construction industry. We also boast a Germany-wide network of reliable logistics partners in the fields of road, rail and shipping.
We’ve been a certified waste management company since 2010. This means our customers not only benefit from the supply of all kinds of raw materials; they can also enjoy a wide range of comprehensive services for the disposal of contaminated soil and building materials. Our portfolio was significantly expanded through the acquisition of the Georgschacht mining heap in Stadthagen and the asphalt mixing plant in Bremen. We then opened another asphalt mixing plant in Stadthagen in 2014.
We’ll continue to use our extensive experience as an efficient provider of comprehensive building services to constantly improve our performance in the future.
