Mammoet has completed the acquisition of ALE, just over four months since the two heavy logistics companies agreed on the deal.
The businesses will now operate as one company under the Mammoet brand and, over the coming months, a fully developed integration plan will be rolled out that will focus on bringing the two organisations together, while maintaining safe and world-class service levels to our customers, Mammoet says.
According to Mammoet, the global coverage of the combined business covers over 140 offices and branches worldwide. Both companies specialise in engineered heavy lifting and transport for sectors such as the petrochemical industry, renewable energy, power generation, civil construction and the offshore industry.
Paul van Gelder, Mammoet CEO, said: “We are looking forward to working together with our new colleagues all over the world and establishing long-term relationships with our customers, existing and new. We will put all our efforts into supporting them with their activities aimed at enhancing cities, businesses and communities that are all part of the transition to a more sustainable future. As their goals increase in size and complexity, we must reshape ourselves to support them while keeping our primary focus on safety.”
Mammoet’s combined team of professionals, as well as its fleet of heavy equipment, are now the world’s largest, according to the company. “This significantly enhances scalability, innovation capabilities and efficient mobilisation, like no one else in the industry.”
Mammoet says it is the only global heavy lifting and transport business with a large R&D facility run independently from its operational activities, allowing it to innovate for the long term in close collaboration with customers.
