PLUTA attorney Christoph Chrobok secures future of Düsseldorf-based personnel service provider

13 May 2024 · Düsseldorf, Germany · Business Area Insolvency Administration

Good news in the insolvency proceedings for personnel service provider Hartmann Personaldienste GmbH based in Düsseldorf: Tempton Personaldienstleistungen GmbH will manage the business going forward. Almost all jobs have been saved.

Hartmann Personaldienste GmbH, which has specialised in placing skilled workers in the industrial-technical and commercial sectors since its foundation in 2018, had to file for insolvency due to declining sales. On 1 May 2024, the Local Court of Düsseldorf then appointed Mr Christoph Chrobok from PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH as insolvency administrator. He had previously acted as provisional administrator for the company. The PLUTA attorney stated, “Temporary employment agencies have been disproportionately affected by insolvency in recent months. For relatively small personnel providers in particular, it is increasingly difficult to find workers. This was also why this agency filed for insolvency.”

Business continuation a challenge

Ever since provisional insolvency administration was ordered on 11 March 2024, Mr Chrobok has maintained the business together with managing director Mr Jan Hartmann.
“It has proven challenging to keep the business operating. We had hardly any starting liquidity and first had to convince customers to stick with us even though they were understandably unsettled by the filing for insolvency. This makes it all the more pleasing that we have now been able to achieve a good solution for the employees,” said the insolvency administrator.
Mr Oliver Hecker, managing partner at Tempton, is delighted with the solution that has been found. “We can offer all employees a secure future and further strengthen our subsidiaries in the Rhineland area,” said Mr Hecker.
