The restructuring officers and insolvency administrators at PLUTA’s branch office in Münster have set themselves the goal of ensuring the future existence of companies as well as achieving competitive returns. Since the branch office was established early in 2002, they have been able to achieve this goal in many successful proceedings and projects.
Today, the Münster branch office, where the members of the PLUTA team provide restructuring services, insolvency administration and advice on economic law, is located right in the city centre. Münster is in the state of Westphalia and has a population of more than 300,000 inhabitants. The city is regarded not only as the economic and cultural centre of the region, but also as one of the strongest economic locations in Germany with above-average purchasing power. The largest employers are and have always been the city’s educational and administrative facilities. Although no large industrial companies are based in the region, there are many SMEs such as Armacell, BASF Coatings GmbH, Brillux Lacke- und Farbenwerke, Hengst GmbH & Co. KG, Schmitz Cargobull AG, Westfalen AG or Windmöller & Hölscher Verwaltungs GmbH.
Moreover, Münster is an important location for financial service providers. Enterprises such as the insurance group Provinzial NordWest, the insurance association Landwirtschaftlicher Versicherungsverein Münster a. G. and a large number of banks have their headquarters here. In addition, almost 30 call centres are located here, making Münster the largest location for telephone marketing in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Furthermore, there is a particular focus on biotechnology and nanotechnology as a result of universities, knowledge transfer facilities and sponsors, enterprises and research centres collaborating closely in this sector in Münster. The eight universities in Münster make it the third largest university city in Germany and nationwide one of the most significant research centres so that the area can offer an extremely forward-looking business environment.
Münster is also situated in a well-networked area with good transport facilities and systems, having a direct link to the A1 and A43 motorways and the international Münster/Osnabrück Airport as well as being a rail hub with InterCity and EuroCity services.
The PLUTA experts have gained a high degree of expertise and an excellent knowledge of a wide variety of sectors. As specialists in the fields of insolvency and restructuring, they can not only offer advice, but also manage projects and are therefore best equipped to provide managing directors, company owners, courts and creditors with the reliable support they need to meet the various challenges facing them in such a dynamic business environment.
