Boasso Global (“Boasso”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Quality Distribution, Inc. (“Quality”), today announced that it has acquired Den Hartogh’s European depot and tank cleaning services business, known as Den Hartogh Cleaning B.V. (“Den Hartogh Cleaning”). Over time Den Hartogh Cleaning will transition to the Boasso Global brand.
“We are pleased to add the Den Hartogh Cleaning business to Boasso Global’s expanding network of best in class terminals in Europe,” commented Tony Morsovillo, President of Boasso. “This high quality, state-of-the-art tank cleaning, repair and depot services business, is a perfect fit with the culture of customer-centric excellence that Boasso is known for in the U.S. and the U.K. This acquisition, in concert with Isotank Group UK, provides the ideal international platform for the continued expansion of our global footprint to meet the needs of our customers and the growing ISO tank industry.”
Den Hartogh Cleaning, headquartered in the Netherlands, provides tank cleaning, repair and other depot services from four locations strategically located in the Netherlands, Spain, and France, addressing some of the primary chemical markets in Western Europe. The acquisition further expands Boasso’s footprint into continental Europe to complement its recent acquisition of Isotank Group U.K.
“Den Hartogh is proud of what it, together with its employees and customers, has achieved with Den Hartogh Cleaning. However, we are convinced that the new ownership will provide the opportunity to grow the cleaning and repair business. We wish Boasso and the former employees of Den Hartogh Cleaning every success in this new endeavor,” commented Pieter Den Hartogh (Group Managing Director Den Hartogh).
Headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, Boasso is a market leading tank container and depot service provider with twelve locations in the United States, seven locations in the United Kingdom and now four locations in continental Europe. Boasso provides its customers a true global product with market leading best practices, increased scale and cost-effective capabilities.
