Geuer International awarded ISO 27001 accreditation

Sep 26, 2016
Münster-based Geuer International has successfully undergone a certification audit for its Information Security Management and has been awarded ISO 27001 accreditation.

The external audit was carried out on 23 June by Peter Gawthrop of Quality Service Standards Ltd (QSS) Watford, United Kingdom.  QSS is the preferred auditor for EUROMOVERS International, of which Geuer is a member. 

To obtain ISO 27001 companies must demonstrate that their systems and procedures for dealing with customers' data are of the highest standards and that confidential information is safe in their hands. Geuer is also ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 accredited.  

“Most of our work is with large corporate clients and they are naturally keen to make sure their data is secure,” said Horst Geuer, the company’s managing director. “Companies here in Germany are increasingly requiring their suppliers to be ISO certified and the 27001 standard assures them that their data will be handled properly at every stage, whether it’s in transit, held electronically or in our archive storage facility.” 

“The process took around 9 months to complete and was handled by our Administrator Fanziska Emming.  Franziska made sure everyone in the company understood what was involved and took the necessary steps to bring our IT systems and procedures up to the required level to meet the ISO standard,” said Horst. 

Geuer began trading in 1983 when Horst was a student and needed to make extra money during the holidays. He bought a Volkswagen van and started doing local removals in the Münster area.  Now the company has almost 100 employees and specialises in laboratory and technical moves for large corporate clients both in Germany and internationally.  Only around 20% of Geuer’s business is in the private household moves sector. 

Horst would like to hear from movers in other territories with a knowledge of high-tech and laboratory moves who may be able to partner with Geuer International in its corporate work.  “It is quite difficult to find companies with the right level of expertise in this sector,” said Horst. “We are particularly interested in companies operating in the US and Asia, but we would also like to speak to movers in other parts of the world whom we may be able to work with.”
