Rotterdam/Ieper – 1 December 2015 – Sitra-Group and Den Hartogh Logistics agreed a transfer of all bulk liquid chemical activities from Sitra to Den Hartogh. The acquisition fits the strategies of both companies. Sitra-Group is focussing on transportation of foodstuff and Den Hartogh Logistics is strengthening its European road and intermodal network.
With Den Hartogh we've found a stable and warm nest for our employees and customers, says David Saelens CEO of Sitra-Group. As we are both family-owned companies we have similar cultures and a similar way of doing business. Long term strategies and people-oriented cultures are important values in both companies. With this divestment in bulk liquid chemicals we can now focus on the further development of our specialisation in the transport of foodstuff by offering road as well as multimodal solutions.
Pieter den Hartogh, Group Managing Director; we always look for opportunities to strengthen our network and this acquisition also helps us to enhance our relationship with customers that were serviced by both our companies.
