The Boards of Directors of Den Hartogh Holding B.V. and Bulkcon Transport AB have announced that, as of May 2, 2017 Den Hartogh has acquired Bulkcon.

In recent years, Den Hartogh Logistics has expanded remarkably to facilitate customer demand with its worldwide presence and closely-knit European network. Joining forces with Bulkcon extends this European network in the Nordics and means that Den Hartogh can benefit from the company's extensive knowledge and experience of operating in the Nordics and internationally.

"We consider Den Hartogh's acquisition of Bulkcon to be a very good step in continuing to satisfy our customers' transport needs in both the European and Global markets," said Thomas Nordbeck, Chairman of the Board, Bulkcon Transport AB.

"It has been a pleasure doing business with Bulkcon through the years. After many years of successful collaboration with this Swedish partner, we will continue to enhance our activities from the existing Den Hartogh office in Gothenburg. Our combined team is convinced that we can further develop our footprint in the Nordics and increase overall customer satisfaction," said Group Managing Director Pieter Den Hartogh.
