Remondis is expanding its footprint in the Netherlands with another acquisition. The German waste management group has acquired the skip hire and waste management company Gebroeders Scholten in Beverwijk via its Dutch subsidiary.
By acquiring the Scholten business, Remondis is aiming to expand its range of services in the North Holland province. "This acquisition is a logical next step after we purchased Adrichem in Beverwijk at the start of 2022,” regional director Edgar Methorst noted. Remondis also retained twelve workers as part of the earlier deal.
Scholten’s entire team is to join Remondis as part of the latest transaction. However, the company’s services will be provided from the neighbouring Remondis/Adrichem site in Beverwijk in the future.
Scholten primarily collects construction and demolition (C&D) waste. Along with providing skip hire services, the company also offers demolition and asbestos removal services as well as machine rental.
A press release issued to mark the takeover notes that the market for C&D waste collection is in a period of transformation. With Remondis, Gebr. Scholten had found an investment partner that could ensure that it would continue to operate into the long-term. The fact that Remondis was a family-owned business with a decentralised structure and the German group's focus on customers were further arguments in favour of the sale.
