Aertssen Group has taken over the activities of the ADM Team Heavy Weight transport company from Westerlo. This acquisition strengthens Aertssen's position in the exceptional transport sector, and promotes further international expansion. Through the acquisition, Aertssen also benefits from a trimodal access location along the Albert Canal.

ADM Team Heavy Weight
ADM Team Heavy Weight is a transport company with 20 years of experience in transporting loads with exceptional dimensions and weights. The company is strategically located in Westerlo, along the Albert Canal, one of the most important waterways in Flanders, and is contiguous to the heavy roll-on-roll-off quay, where goods can be transported trimodally (by road, water and rail). The acquired company employs around 20 people and has an extremely modern and high-tech vehicle fleet.

Strategic acquisition
Through the acquisition, Aertssen Group aims to make use of the strategic location of ADM Team Heavy Weight, close to the Albert Canal, to strengthen its market position. The extensive network of international customers also ensures that a further international expansion in exceptional transport is within reach. The acquisition thus fits in well with the growth plan of the Stabroek-based group, which has been strongly committed to logistics services in recent years.

Aertssen Group is always looking for new opportunities to strengthen its market position. One of them is currently taking shape in the Waasland Logistics Park, where Aertssen Logistics is building a brand-new 14-hectare logistics centre for construction and agricultural machinery. Furthermore, it already has a trimodal terminal covering 10 hectares in the port of Antwerp.

Aertssen Group
Aertssen Group is an international family business specialised in exceptional transports, logistics services, construction and infrastructure works, crane rental, green energy and real estate development. Kranen Michielsens and Roll-it have been part of the group since 2018, and the Envi and Willy Crommen companies were also acquired in January 2019. Aertssen Group is active worldwide in more than 20 countries, and achieved a turnover of 260 million euro in 2018. With more than 1,500 motivated employees, extensive experience and high-tech machinery, the family business brings every complex project to a successful conclusion. Aertssen Group opts for continuous investment in its people and its machines. In short: People, Power and Passion to Build on!
