IJS Global acquired by Dutch investor
20 / 03 / 2015
GLOBAL logistics service provider IJS Global has been acquired by Dutch investment company Nimbus.
IJS will provide the Netherlands-based entity with its first involvement in the transport and logistics sector, but IJS will continue to be driven from its Amsterdam headquarters with its senior management remaining very much in place, says a statement.
Sjoerd van Loon remains in his current position as global chief executive officer, whilst Mike Gillett will assume the role of global chief operating officer.
The deal will allow IJS to “advance in the vertical markets,” says van Loon.
“Our international network across Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA already comprises more than 40 offices and they will continue to focus on delivering robust solutions to our customers, especially those in the pharma, energy and aerospace sectors,” he adds.
Marc Renne, Nimbus’ managing partner, comments: “We will be empowering IJS Global’s senior management to continue growing the business while at the same time making sure the business is structured and financed, so that it remains agile and geared towards its’ strategic objectives.”
