Royal Den Hartogh Logistics has strengthened its footprint in the Nordics with the acquisition of Hedenskogs Åkeri and Hedenskogs Tankeri in Gothenburg, Sweden.
With this takeover of the trucking and steam cleaning and storage business, Den Hartogh Group is adding a modern facility for tank container cleaning and storage, and a new office building to its assets.
Hedenskogs Åkeri and Tankeri AB is specialised in the transport, heating and storage of tank containers.
The storage depot is 10,000m2 and accommodates 150 - 200 tank container units. Steam cleaning is performed on site under strict safety policies.
The complete acquisition allows Den Hartogh to improve customer service and strengthens its local network.
Fredrik Kimfors, general manager Nordics Den Hartogh, said: "Den Hartogh Nordics is in an expansion phase and through the acquisition we are now also established in an exciting region with its own home base, with strong growth."
By combining efforts a common culture and matching market approach will be created.
"The staff is the most important part of a company's success, and we have a fantastic staff. We aim to create good conditions for a future where all employees develop together with the company in a positive spirit,” said parting owner Gabriella Hedenskog.
With this addition, Den Hartogh said it was confident of further increasing customer satisfaction by providing steam cleaning and storage on its own premises.
