„Bukh Diesel Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH“ was founded as a sales office on 4th May 1976 as a daughter company to Bukh Engine A/S, Kalundborg, Denmark, which at that time belonged to the AP Moeller / Maersk group. From the start Mr. Detlef Lange as proxy and Mr. Jan-Dirk Lampe, both formally employeed at the Lloyd engine company and thus not new to engines were in charge of the operation.
The principal office from day one was the Kornstraße 243 in 28201 Bremen.
1984 Mr. Lange and Mr. Lampe acquired 100% of the shares of „Bukh Diesel Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH“ and Mr. Lange became Managing Director and Mr. Lampe became proxy. With time more and more products and manufacturers were added to the portfolio. The current portfolio of brands and products, some of which have been represented for 30 years, lead to a shift in focus from engines to equipment and hence in 1993 the name of the company was changed to „Bukh Bremen Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH“, and in 2004 to „Bukh Bremen GmbH“ .
Represented brands, many of these exclusive in the territory, are marketed by exhibiting at the leading boat shows, print media and the internet, this insures an optimal presence in the market. Efficient logistics and stock keeping, in company owned premises, insures shortest possible leadtimes. Bukh Bremen acts as an importer and wholesaler and thus only supplies the specialzed trade, boat yards and industrial customers.
In 2009 Mr. Andrew Winkley and Jens Ellermann took over the active management of the company after completing a MBO/MBI.
