Mammoet confirms that the acquisition of ALE has been completed, and the businesses will now operate as one company under the Mammoet brand. Over the coming months a fully developed integration plan will be rolled out that will focus on bringing the two organizations together. The global coverage of the combined business is over 140 offices and branches worldwide ensuring proximity to the world’s most important industrial and urban areas and thus the company’s customer base.
Michael Birch, until now member of ALE’s Executive Board of Management, has joined Mammoet’s Executive Board as Chief Commercial Officer. The board also consists of the following members: Paul van Gelder, Chief Executive Officer, Kees Voormolen, Chief Financial Officer, Jan Klein, Chief Operating Officer, Ivonne Verlinde, Chief Human Resources Officer.
Paul van Gelder, Mammoet CEO, commented: “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. We will keep improving our services and support them to build smarter, safer and stronger across the world.
We feel a fundamental connection to these words. They express our desire to challenge conventional thinking, minimize risk and lead innovation in the industry. Which is why we have chosen to take them on board in our new brand proposition. Together, we are Smarter, Safer, Stronger.”
