Thus, the city-state is once again represented with a consulate in northern Germany. The office is headed by Dirk Lorenz-Meyer, the son of former Consul Dieter Lorenz-Meyer, who passed away in 2008, and caused the old consulate to close. His family has been maintaining close ties with Southeast Asia for centuries. The family enterprise Behn Meyer Group dates back to 1840 when two young men from Hamburg, Theodor August Behn and Valentin Lorenz Meyer, established Behn, Meyer & Co. in Singapore. In 1857, Arnold Otto Meyer, consul in Singapore, set up the company of the same name in Hamburg.
Consular Office is a Family Tradition
Core business of the firm is the marketing and distribution of fertilisers and agrochemical products such as fungicides, herbicides or insecticides. Moreover, Behn Meyer produces rubber chemicals for the European market in its Asian plants. Other business areas include food ingredients, chemicals and polymers such as plastic. Behn Meyer employs some 1,000 staff in 14 countries, where they are working in 28 offices, 38 warehouses, and several manufacturing facilities in Southeast Asia and Europe.
