Warmly welcoming our most recent GBC members

Four additional companies join the German national chapter of EuroCham Cambodia

German Business Cambodia is delighted to welcome four new members! The companies Aerne Architects & Associates; Botanico Brewing and Academy Co., LTD; Hafele (Cambodia) Co., Ltd; and Royal Group Exchange (RGX) Co., Ltd. joined us in Q2 2024.

Aerne Architects & Associates is a leading boutique architectural practice based in Phnom Penh, with a strong link to Swiss and Australian associates. Their passion is to create high-quality design and construction – architecture that is timeless, sustainable, cohesive, and far beyond a sum of its parts. The company always strives for an outstanding outcome which means a tailored service to create beautiful experiences of space with long-term value.


Botanico Brewing and Academy Co., LTD. specializes in producing and distributing craft beer. In 2013, a few like-minded people from the West joined their brew master with a common goal: to find a craft beer in Phnom Penh that was reminiscent of home. Fast forward more than 10 years and the craft brewery is well established beyond the borders of Phnom Penh. Botanico Brewing Company (formerly known as Cerevisia Craft Brewery) has given craft beer a Cambodian identity. Their business has since grown from a “nano” brewing hobby into a microbrewery with a number of community taprooms, restaurants, and charitable initiatives. “Botanico Wine and Beer Garden” is their main restaurant brand within the Group.


Hafele (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. a company of German origin, is a world leader in hardware and equipment for interior design.
