Investment company Globitas has announced that it has successfully completed the acquisition of HEGO. The acquisition by Globitas gives a strong impetus to HEGO’s growth ambitions. With this new shareholder, the company is entering a new phase focused on innovation, digitalization and new business models.
Since 1977, HEGO has been active as an international wholesaler and service center in the trade and processing of stainless steel and aluminum. HEGO offers a wide range of stainless steel and aluminum sheets and coils in different sizes and alloys, available directly from stock.
The Commercial Director, André van der Veen commented on this acquisition,
“With Globitas as a new shareholder in our company, we are very optimistic about the future. Thanks to the additional knowledge and expertise provided by Globitas, we can achieve the course already set in order to achieve our ambitious goals even more quickly. In the years to come, we will grow to become one of the most important players in stainless steel and aluminum, in the Netherlands and far beyond. On behalf of all HEGO employees, I would like to thank Wim and Fabien Gort for their unwavering commitment and support over the years. Without them, HEGO could never have become what we are today.
