Royal Den Hartogh Logistics has expanded its portfolio by acquiring H&S Group.
Ubbo Hempenius, owner of H&S Group, and Pieter den Hartogh, group managing director of Royal Den Hartogh Logistics, signed an agreement on 15 March.
H&S will become the fifth business unit of Den Hartogh, alongside the business units liquid, gas, global and dry bulk.
Ubbo Hempenius stated: “The merger of H&S Group and Den Hartogh is an excellent opportunity to combine and fully utilise our strengths, expand our smart logistics solutions, and further develop our reach.
“I am convinced, and so are our CEO Stefan Heintjes and our Advisory Board, that this is the right step forward for H&S. It ensures the continuity and independence of our company. We are creating a sustainable future for our teams, working together to set new standards in the world of logistics. Above all, it ensures that our customers benefit to the fullest from a unique and comprehensive global service package.”
Pieter den Hartogh added: “Expanding into a fifth business unit for liquid foodstuff is a strategic choice and on top of that being able to do this in partnership with H&S, a family-owned business with so many intersections in terms of history, values and ambition, makes me incredibly proud. We're not just merging activities; we're combining our stories, our dreams and our people. The H&S team, with their expertise, vast knowledge, experience and ambition, is a valuable and welcome addition to the Den Hartogh family.”
