Introducing the Management

POS Service Group was founded by Peter Horbach in 1987. The group of companies continues to be owned by the Horbach family. Values that matter in a family company are a sense of commitment, loyalty, and above all customer service. 

The family and the company are proud that many employees – and in particular many executives – have been contributing actively to the company for many years now, and in some cases decades.
