Remondis is expanding its operations in Poland. Germany's largest waste management company announced on Tuesday that it had entered a conditional agreement to acquire the Polish activities of the Swedish Ragn-Sells group. The agreement includes Ragn-Sells Polska (RSP) and its subsidiary Ragn-Sells Technology (RST), a joint venture with BEWI Drift Holding AS. Ragn-Sells Polska is headquartered in Gorzów Wielkopolski, Poland. With the takeover, Remondis is further broadening its presence in the municipal and commercial waste markets in north-western Poland.
"The decision to divest our Polish operation is a consequence of our new strategy where we are consolidating and refocusing our business into three main business areas," said Lars Lindén, CEO of Ragn-Sells group. The Swedish company believed that Remondis' takeover would bring new synergies and opportunities locally, but also accelerate the further development of both Ragn-Sells and Remondis. Torsten Weber, managing director of Remondis International, said that the sale opened new development opportunities in the Polish market.
