Rostock-Laage (Germany), Grevenmacher (Luxembourg), February 8, 2024 – Following resolution of the Annual General Meeting to rename exceet Group SCA (ISIN LU0472835155) to H2APEX Group SCA, the name change was entered into the Company Register. The new name aptly reflects the focus of the listed parent company of APEX Group (“APEX”), a leading developer and operator of green hydrogen plants for the decarbonization of industry, infrastructure and mobility, on the hydrogen specialist. Going forward, both companies will operate jointly under the brand H2APEX.

The H2APEX Group is led by a strong operational management team that combines technical and business expertise and consists of Peter Rößner (CEO), Bert Althaus (CFO), Axel Funke (CTO), Gunnar Krüger (CBDO) and Bojan Petrov (COO). The management is supported by the in-depth know-how of the Group’s Supervisory Board, which includes high caliber industry and financial experts such as Roland Lienau (Chairman), Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heinz Jörg Fuhrmann (Deputy Chairman), Prof. Dr. Matthias Beller, Georges Bock, Florian Schuhbauer and Thomas Terschluse.

Roland Lienau, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the H2APEX Group, said: “The renaming of exceet to H2APEX is a reflection of our focus on the development of APEX’s hydrogen business and the realization of its growth strategy. The Supervisory Board and management are now optimally positioned to further expand our leading market position under the H2APEX brand.”

Peter Rößner, CEO of the operating business of the H2APEX Group, added: “In the future, we will consistently present ourselves as H2APEX with a clear core brand message in the market for green hydrogen plants. The H2APEX brand stands for a high level of planning expertise, reliable and proven technical solutions and extensive experience in the construction of large-scale plants in the industrial and energy sectors. This gives us a unique position in Germany and makes us the first point of contact for companies in the industrial and heavy-duty transport sectors when it comes to hydrogen solutions.”

In addition, the company offers hydrogen plants for infrastructure and logistics, especially for industrial use in warehouses, ports and production facilities.
