Founded in autumn 1989 by Hartmut Grell and partners OSKO started with touristic services of european students in St.Petersburg and Moscow. In June 1994 OSKO started trading activities based from Hamburg office. Aim was to provide trading goods supply to the russian market.
While supplying several retail stores and organizing logistic services and negotiations with premium german brands like Stiebel Eltron GmbH, Grundfos GmbH, OASE GmbH and many more (see „partner“), OSKO acted the general distributor in Russia and C.I.S. for Stiebel Eltron (until 2007) and OASE Livingwater GmbH (until 2009).
Several projects/companies like OSKO Haus and Garden City rose and splitted up in this time. One of the highlights is the floating fountain on the embankment of the Newa river in 2006 to mention as a masterpiece of german-russian cooperation. The fountain was realized within less than 10 month from the idea to installation (at this moment the biggest floating fountain in the world).
OSKO is providing a wide range of services to russian and german companies and is mainly active in consulting services and import of german technical equipment to Russia.
