09/04/2020 – Acquisition
B+S and Van Merksteijn acquired Witechs
B+S and Van Merksteijn acquired Witechs on February 18, 2020. This means that all activities will be carried out from Hengelo/NL with immediate effect.
Witechs, supplier of wire technologies, due to unforeseen circumstances, was in difficulty for several months and bankruptcy was inevitable. Against this backdrop, B+S Industrieel Onderhoud (Industrial Maintenance) and Van Merksteijn International acquired WiTechs on February 18, 2020. This means that all activities will be carried out from Hengelo (in the province of Overijssel, the Netherlands) with immediate effect. Aside from the Witechs name and the logo, which will remain the same, the acquisition brings substantial change.
B+S Industrieel Onderhoud (Industrial Maintenance) is a renowned technical service provider that for decades has been engaged in engineering, machine building and the maintenance of entire factories.
Van Merksteijn International is currently one of the world’s largest producers of reinforcement products and fencing panels. Van Merksteijn International also has a subsidiary, “Coro” (Cold Rolling solutions), which, together with B+S Industrieel Onderhoud (Industrial Maintenance), has developed the Ecoclean, a machine that will, of course, become a part of the Witechs product catalogue.
