1959 – 1992 | Foundation and first successes as a sea freight forwarder
Under the company name Peter Wittwer GmbH & Co. KG in the 1950s, the first successful business is founded as a freight forwarder in Stuttgart. After a few years, Peter Ege takes over the management of the company. He continuously expands the international business over the next forty years. On business trips to the USA, he establishes his first contacts with the local agricultural machinery industry in the Midwest and successfully recruits them as customers.
In the mid-1980s, the company is divided into two companies. Peter Ege continues the business of the company: Internationales Transportkontor Ege GmbH in Stuttgart. Peter Steinmüller begins his career in the company at the end of the 1980s.
