Gosselin Group has acquired the business of Verhuizingen Meys and Meys Vastgoed, based in Brasschaat, Beglium. The Dutch company is taking on employees and assets, which will fall under the Gosselin Group’s international moves division.
Marc Smet, CEO of Gosselin Group, said: ‘The acquisition of Meys’ activities will be an important addition to our portfolio of services. In the future, Meys will become our expert for national moves and will represent a significant supplement for our self-storage division. Verhuizingen Meys concentrates on full-service moves and has earned its spurs in this area thanks to the high quality of the professional services they offer. We are incredibly pleased with this acquisition.’
In a joint statement, directors of Verhuizingen Meys, Erik and Patrick Meys, said: ‘For us, it’s essential that the activities and the client base we have built will continue to be served by a player operating at the same level. Gosselin’s international experience, its rich history and proven track record gives us certainty that our people, assets and clients will be in good hands, and that continuity will be guaranteed.’
Smet said that the two directors would be assisting with the transition and the Meys name will be retained.
He said: ‘The name Meys won’t be disappearing just yet. The name it has built in the region around Antwerp is too important for that. People will quickly find out that their international moves will now also be in good hands.’
