Upstalsboom Hotel + Freizeit GmbH & Co. KG is a leading holiday service provider on the North and Baltic Seas. As an operator for approximately 60 hotels and holiday home complexes, as well as a service partner for several investors and travel agencies, the mid-size consortium based in Emden offers the highest quality standards. In the three to five star category, Upstalsboom is selected as a top provider in 20 locations along the German coast, as well as Berlin and Emden. In 2005, for the first time since the company was founded in 1976 by Werner H. Janssen and his wife Gretchen, the second generation of the family company took over management. Since the death of his father and the company founder in 2007, Bodo Janssen has managed Upstalsboom Hotel + Freizeit GmbH & Co. KG: Friesian warmth and friendliness, progressive ideas, the courage to take calculated entrepreneurial risks, modern technology, a first-class employee qualification and a trustworthy partnership on all levels are the secrets to success for this company. Thanks to the progress made by the consortium, the net revenue from the end of 2008 to the end of 2012 had almost doubled to 37.5 million euros. The number of employees in this period also increased from 400 to 600.
