Nuvovita GmbH

Nuvovita stands for teamwork & credibility

Hamburg, situated in the north of Germany with Europe's second biggest harbor, is the cornerstone of Nuvovita´s history. The City of Hamburg has been, and continues to be, influential to Sino-German trade. The establishment of strong relationships throughout China, and in particular a firm partnership with Shanghai, has helped business thrive.

The family Büchsenmann has been working from Hamburg for many years. In the early 50’s Hans Büchsenmann came to Hamburg with a truck full of wood from southern Germany, and instead of repeating this venture decided to look for opportunities in the far east. During this period, he found himself amidst the growing textile consumer industry in Hong Kong. Hong Kong, still under British influence, provided him with the platform he needed to establish steady processes of trade between Chinese factories and European clothing brands. His son, Kai, joined the company at an early age in 1982 and inherited not only the passion for Chinese business, but also the keen eye for carefully identifying and seizing new avenues for business development in China. In answer to these market opportunities, Kai founded Nuvovita (Latin for "new life"); specialising in the import of food supplements from China to Germany.

Kai Büchsenmann has successfully taken this new orientation and continued to plan future development. In addition to his ongoing business, he spearheaded the physical entrance into the Chinese market in 2007. Deng Ocean Beijing Trading Ltd. was established as a Chinese legal entity, and alliances and partnerships were formed with key individuals in the market. In 2011, Paul Büchsenmann continued to evolve the focus of the family’s Chinese business by opening Nuvovita’s Beijing office and advancing into the export of German consumer products to China.

Today, Nuvovita’s Hamburg office is responsible for sourcing German products suitable for the Chinese market, as well as its traditional business of importing raw materials to the pharmaceutical production industry. Our Beijing office manages imports and distribution for our German partners. In collaboration, we offer a range of integrated consultancy services in Beijing and Hamburg. Our recent expansion to China has continued to grow exponentially in the last year due to demand arising from Deng Ocean`s and Nuvovita`s unique position in the market.

Mission statement

As a family business, close ties and friendship are very important to us. We are looking to reflect this in all areas of our business with China.

Nuvovita´s core business is the import of raw materials to Germany. This business is driven by its financial opportunity as production in China is still a valuable option in many cases. Recently, the risk of low quality products has decreased immensely due to the Chinese government’s influence over dumping prices and adverse working conditions. This is a great development for Nuvovita and our clients in transparency and reliability.

Since 2005, our business in providing distribution for German producers in China has grown steadily. This is due to the increasing wealth and disposable incomes of more and more Chinese people. We have taken careful measures to increase our presence in the market and are now able to provide our clients with a wholly integrated value chain. We can offer procurement, export from and import into China, as well as distribution. Our distribution relies on a network of strong partners in online and offline sales. The Chinese online market offers incredible potential due to its advanced and low cost logistical support and access to the sheer number of individuals buying products online. We are utilizing this medium, as well as a number of offline channels targeted towards China’s 1st and 2nd tier cities.

Nuvovita´s third pillar of operation is our consulting business. Our aim is to provide customers with an integrated solution using a framework and services to realize your product from the moment it leaves your warehouse to placement in the biggest supermarkets in China. We hold in-house experience derived from employment with major strategy consultants as well as specialized consultancy firms. Our goal is to use this knowledge by focusing on hands on matters to provide our clients with achievable, individual strategies.
