On 8 August 1928, Albert Streff established a transportation business under his own name. Even in those early days, the company also specialised in relocations.
The size and geographical location of Luxembourg presented a particular challenge as international mobility increased. Cross-border transportations could only be carried out efficiently with the appropriate knowledge of inter-state rules and regulations (customs, entry and transportation).
As each state had its own requirements, the transfer of information between international removal companies was of the utmost importance. This led to the formation of the FIDI (Fédération Internationale des Déménageurs Internationaux), the international association of international removal companies, in 1950. On 1 January 1954, Streff became the first Luxembourg company to join this organisation, and by doing so already emphasised its international competence in those early days.
On 29 May 1970, Albert Streff decided to retire and sold his company to the Chorus family, who have run the company ever since.
Over the following years, new business divisions and logistics solutions were developed. Special systems for the storage of furniture and archives, archive logistics, document scanning, data carrier destruction and the Security Box are just some of our innovations. Protecting the natural environment has always been an important issue for the company's activities, and Streff is committed to its GREEN POLICY.
