Mammoet has completed the acquisition of UK-headquartered ALE – a merger that creates the industry’s largest global provider of engineered heavy lifting and transport services.
ALE will now operate under the Mammoet brand and, over the coming months, a full integration plan will be rolled out that focuses on bringing the two organisations together.
Combined, the two companies have a network that spans 140 offices and branches worldwide.
Michael Birch, executive director at ALE, has joined Mammoet’s executive board as the chief commercial officer. The board also includes Paul van Gelder, ceo; Kees Voormolen, cfo; Jan Kleijn, coo; and Ivonne Verlinde, chief human resources officer.
Paul van Gelder, Mammoet ceo, said: “We are looking forward to working together with our new colleagues all over the world and establishing long term relationships with our customers, existing and new. We will put all our efforts into supporting them with their activities aimed at enhancing cities, businesses and communities that are all part of the transition to a more sustainable future. As their goals increase in size and complexity, we must reshape ourselves to support them while keeping our primary focus on safety.
"For that, we want to understand our clients’ business and challenges better than anyone else. Regardless of their size, industry or location.”
The value of the transaction has not been disclosed.
