The QTRADO Group under the umbrella of QTRADO Holding GmbH & Co. KG consists of several companies that have been active for many decades in the three major areas of wholesale, retail and logistics.
Business partners and customers can rely on our many years of experience. Even though the QTRADO brand has only been on the market since April 2019, the previous companies all have a robust history dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.
With the start of operations on 01.04.2019, QTRADO GmbH & Co. KG is Germany's largest press wholesaler. The combined expertise of the group has created a powerful union which is stronger than any one individual company: Together we are stronger in sales and even more creative in developing new marketing strategies and ideas for our customers.
HOLLMANN is active in the retail trade as part of the QTRADO Group. Founded in 1946 by Paul Hollmann, the company initially focused on newspaper and magazine wholesaling in the Düsseldorf area. In the 1950s, newspaper trading was established at Düsseldorf Airport and the first store opened there. With the expansion and growth of Düsseldorf Airport, further Buch & Presse businesses were added over the decades. HOLLMANN currently operates four Buch & Presse Shops and three YOUR PRESENT Shops at Düsseldorf Airport as well as two Buch & Presse Shops in Düsseldorf city centre.
QTRADO Logistics developed from the logistics department of the press wholesaler Presse Keppel, which was founded in 1945 in Krefeld. In 1997, the logistics division was renamed ztv Zustell-, Transport- und Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG was founded as an independent company. In April 2019 Presse Keppel merged with three other press wholesalers in North Rhine-Westphalia. In connection with this merger, ztv was renamed QTRADO Logistics and gradually took over further locations and logistics tasks.
We are looking forward to a common future in a challenging market!
