Hans Rinck

[Hans Rinck Brennstoffe] image by Eugene Ipavec, 4 Jun 2006

Hans Rinck Brennstoffe (fuels) OHG is a bunkering service located at Horneburg, not far from the left bank of the Elbe, opposite Hamburg in Germany.  Link to the company website (in English): Providing mineral oil of various kinds to shipowners for more than twenty years now, Hans Rinck has the necessary storage tanks and a fleet of trucks plus three seagoing vessels.  Other tanker vessels are under contract.

As the Rinck family name is prominent among the employees, I suppose this is still a family business of which Hans Rinck would then have been the founder and first owner.  There also exists a Hans Rinck Tankschiff (tankship) GmbH at Horneburg.

The house flag is remarkable: white with a blue silhouette of an ascending worker carrying a load.  No photos with flag found yet I?m afraid.

Pennant


[Hans Rinck - pennant] image by Eugene Ipavec modified by Klaus-Michael Schneider, based on a photo located by Jan Mertens, 10 Oct 2006

On 30 April 2006, I had to confess: "no photos with flag found yet I'm afraid" (the house flag has been giffed by Eugene Ipavec, to be sure) but the optimists will prevail - after a fashion, as a small pennant is only a small breakthrough.
There is a photo detail showing this white pennant with the worker in a darker shade of blue than shown on the company website (he said accusingly). Found on German eBay under item no. 220025238762, end 17 September 2006, concerning five house flags in all. Not identified by the owner, the pennant's dimensions were given as 28cm x 51cm and described as "new" despite its somewhat crumpled appearance. But then you are bound to look like that after a hard day's work?

RMKS

[RMKS hausflag] image by Eugene Ipavec, 17 Apr 2009

Rhein Main Kies und Splitt GmbH & Co. KG (i.e. Rhine Main Gravel and Crushed Stone) is established at Wesel on the River Rhine and related to üRMKS Schiffahrt, Spedition und Handel GmbH (i.e. RMKS Shipping, Forwarding and Tradeü).
Modest website (German only), showing a flagoid we may assume is the house flag: founded in 1963 and currently employing 26, RMKS is active in extracting sand, gravel, and crushed stone which are important building material.  As the extracting sites empty they are landscaped with respect for the environment (although ecologists have their doubts).
Additional source.
 Image based on a table flag, standing in for a possible house flag (as RMKS has a separate shipping division): I have not yet found any photos of vessels flying it.  Blue field bearing large white initials RMKS without serifs.

Rüdebusch BBS

[Rüdebusch BBS] image by Eugene Ipavec, 3 Aug 2010

Rüdebusch Braunschweiger Binnenschifffahrt GmbH (i.e. Rüdebusch Brunswick Inland Navigation Ltd.) is a young firm founded in 2007 by Hans-Hermann Rüdebusch. For further information click here.
One vessel, INGA, a general freighter, is operated. Services rendered logically include transportation over inland waterways, possibly to a harbour, but also warehousing. Apparently preferred goods are construction materials.
BBS was founded to expand the logistic solutions, already offered by Mr. Rüdebusch's original road transportation company, founded in 1978. For further information click here.
Originally established at Braunschweig the main firm now has three more local offices, two of them in the former GDR.
The house flag is red showing the Rüdebusch road transportation logo in white, perhaps somewhat shifted towards the right, plus the company initials in black, serifless initials "BBS" in the upper hoist.
The logo consists of three rounded and parallel stripes, gradually growing thicker and coming together (the left or largest one definitively ends in an arrowhead) while describing a quarter circle (left upper quadrant); there is a fourth bowed line under the others, seemingly aimed at meeting them the other way round.
