we introduce ourselves
EnergieReich Consulting was founded as an entrepreneurial community in 2018. The company is based in northern Germany in the immediate vicinity of the Elbe and 30 kilometers from Hamburg. Despite the pandemic, we opened our sourcing office in Hong Kong in 2020, where our company owner, Ms. Merz-Fischer, lived and worked for many years and still has her second home.
It is our aim to always be one step ahead of the latest trends and to bring new innovative products to the German market as early as possible.
Through direct sourcing in China and Southeast Asia, we are able to identify new developments for our customers at an early stage and to find reliable producers through our partners.
We are strong because we have strong partners by our side. Daily communication with China and Asia is part of our daily routine and we are constantly finding out what’s new and what new products are coming onto the market.
Our own office in Hong Kong supports our activities directly, from checking new suppliers, sending samples or processing orders.
All products that we import are subject to strict quality controls and tests for EU conformity.
Thanks to our many years of experience in logistics, we always find the best transport options and only work with reliable partners who we have known and valued for many years because they guarantee us fast and reliable delivery routes.

In 2019, Dirk Fischer was invited by the Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the BMWI on a delegation trip to China. Due to his extensive experience, he immediately made many connections with Chinese entrepreneurs and developed successful business relationships with them. The cooperation style and the Chinese mentality have inspired him to continue on this path towards China and Asia and to build up his own trading network. His network in China and Asia has developed quickly and together with his wife Olivia Merz-Fischer, who speaks Chinese and Indonesian, EnergieReich Consulting has been able to record considerable success within a very short time since its foundation and has achieved seven-digit annual sales since 2020.
