Garbe-Gruppe is a Berlin-based group of companies founded in 1985 with over 30 years of experience in the areas of demolition, hazardous materials and material flow management as well as landscaping and gardening. In addition to a comprehensive service portfolio in the sector of construction materials trading and processing, the successful group has a versatile fleet of vehicles with skip loaders, roll-off containers, self-loaders and semi-trailer dumpers and can therefore offer its customers a wide range of transport and disposal solutions. A fully integrated value chain makes the group and attractive and reliable provider for both private and public clients.
As part of a succession plan, ADCURAM acquired all Garbe-Gruppe shares in July 2019. Since then, Garbe-Gruppe has achieved a strong, positive development, especially operationally, with the support of the ADCURAM team. By systematically identifying and leveraging process optimization potential as well as through continuously developing key functions such as site managers and foremen, ADCURAM and the Garbe-Gruppe management team have been able to sustainably drive the group’s growth. Today, the company generates revenues of over EUR 60 million with approximately 370 employees and three locations in Berlin. With its market-leading position in the construction sector, the company has been involved in high-profile projects and serves renowned clients such as the Berlin Senate, Daimler and Bayer. It has become impossible to imagine the company’s core market – the Berlin-Brandenburg region – without Garbe-Gruppe.
