New export markets for Group VH
Group VH is a highly specialized company offering building, repair, overhaul and spare parts for axial piston units from Bosch Rexroth.
Group VH is an authorised Repair Center and Service Partner for Bosch Rexroth. Uniquely, Bosch Rexroth has granted the rights to Group VH, as the only company in the world outside the Rexroth family, to build units for the aftermarket worldwide – also for not standard units.
How to go into Latvia
To penetrate the market in Latvia, Group VH is getting assistance from Gints Alberts NORLINDS, Counsellor of Economic and Commercial Affairs from the embassy of the Republic of Latvia in Denmark. At a start-up meeting 27th of February at Group VH in Esbjerg, Gints promoted Latvia as an attractive place for doing business to foreign companies. Latvia is the central place in the Baltic region, therefore it is a rather favourable spot for logistics to cover all three Baltic countries together.
Group VH has specialized in overhauling hydraulic axial pumps from Bosch Rexroth – with a full 12 months Bosch Rexroth warranty. In Denmark Group VH is doing overhauling of the hydraulic package on the PU (Power Unit) on trains. Group VH is now looking to use this knowledge for similar companies abroad – as for example RB Rail AS in Latvia with overhauling of their PU.

Going to America
Group VH wants to enter the market in the USA. Esbjerg is a member of the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP). To help Group VH use the synenergy of this partnership, the mayor of Esbjerg Jesper Frost Rasmussen and the Head of Business Carsten Rieder from the municipality of Esbjerg visited Group VH.
After a tour around Group VH, Jesper Rasmussen posted at Facebook ‘A beautiful and well driven company with a unique way to manage all logistics and, one of the leading companies in the World in its area. With more than 39,000 original Bosch Rexroth spare parts ready to ship from the stock in Esbjerg, Group VH is able to help customers with an urgent need of a replacement Bosch Rexroth unit or spare parts.'
