A cooperative at the core

The cooperative roots of ANWR GROUP eG go back to 1919 with the founding of NORD-WEST Schuhwareneinkaufsgenossenschaft eG in Hamburg. Even today, as an internationally positioned cooperative business network, the values of the community continue to be decisive.

It is easier to achieve goals together than on one's own - under this premise, it is easier for the members of ANWR GROUP eG to successfully assert themselves in the markets of the specialised retail trade and to maintain their independence.

The organs of ANWR GROUP eG are, according to its statutes:


Board of Directors

The Supervisory Board


Die Generalversammlung

As the "parliament of the cooperative", all members of ANWR GROUP eG come together once a year for the ordinary general assembly within the framework of the ANWR dealer forum. The Executive Board and Supervisory Board give an account of their work to the members. The members approve the annual financial statements, decide on the appropriation of dividends, elect the members of the Supervisory Board and decide on any amendments to the Articles of Association.

The rights and duties of the General Meeting are based on the law and the Constition.
