Towards further sustainability of our transport via the acquisition of Driessen nv
On Friday July 28th, 2017 H.Essers signed the acquisition of Driessen nv
Driessen nv is a family business from Limburg that is specialized in the sale and transport of building materials. The company is strategically located in the canal area of Genk-Zuid.
For several years now, H.Essers is active in the market of utility logistics through our sister company Geertrans (utilities, infrastructure, construction and event logistics) and we can continue developing this strategic segment thanks to this acquisition.
H.Essers likes to focus more on intermodal transportation, as evidenced by our plans to develop H.Essers Dry Port on the former Ford site in Genk-Zuid. Therefore, this acquisition means a further step in increasing the sustainability of our transportation by reducing road transports for the benefit of the waterway.
In addition, this acquisition ensures that the company will be able to grow in the segment of building infrastructure and that we can also expand these activities on a broad European scale.
