H.Essers keeps on growing!


Tuesday July 31st we signed the acquisition of the company KDL Trans. KDL Trans handles the distribution and/or warehousing and installation of small computer material & servers. The customers are major computer brands, but also public or private companies. KDL Trans is also a family company and was founded by Marc De Laet in 1991.

The activities situate mainly in the added value services in the IT- and high tech sector, going from installations – staging – whipping – cleaning of computers and copiers, to maintenance, support, return logistics and the installation of voting computers.

“Through this strategic acquisition we show our faith in the added value of the services by KDL Trans. We are convinced that the takeover will allow us to grow in the field of transport and logistics of high-quality goods and we believe that we can increase our position in the market of Value Added Logistics”, says Ivo Marechal, CEO H.Essers.

The family De Laet will also remain active in the company after the acquisition, just like the whole workforce of KDL Trans who remain employed on their site in Cargovil.

In addition to all business-related affairs, H.Essers will also take over the sponsoring contract cyclo-cross of KDL Trans. This Landbouwkrediet-KDL Cycling Team includes amongst others Sven Nys, Sven Vanthourenhout en Vincent Baestaens.
