Rotom Europe has acquired Lievaart-Slaghuis, a Netherlands-based pallet company.
In a strategic move designed to further solidify its leadership in sustainable load carrier solutions, Rotom Europe has announced the acquisition of Lievaart-Slaghuis, a respected pallet company based in the Netherlands. The move supports Rotom’s aspiration to helm the European market in sustainable load carrier services.
Rotom’s European Footprint
Rotom has been a leading provider of sustainable load carriers across 11 European countries. The company’s forte lies in managing the intricate logistics of load carriers—be it new or used wooden and plastic pallets or metal rolling containers. From production site logistics to end-of-chain collection, Rotom offers its clientele a singular point of contact. This is bolstered by a robust network of locations across Europe, streamlining operations for clients. Through its integrated solutions, Rotom ensures an optimized and sustainable supply chain, translating to tangible benefits like reduced operational costs and an uptick in recycled materials utilization.
Lievaart-Slaghuis: A Legacy of Excellence
Initiated in 1982, Lievaart-Slaghuis operates from two prime locations in Hoek van Holland and Standdaarbuiten. Respected for its detailed attention to the procurement, production, recycling, and sales of both new and used pallets and accessories, it’s no surprise that the company has emerged as a leader in the Benelux region.
Rotom’s acquisition of Lievaart-Slaghuis comes on the heels of its merger with goplasticpallets.com and All Pallets this past August. This previous integration not only amplified goplasticpallets.com’s service spectrum but also paved the way for Rotom to make inroads in the UK load carrier sector.
A Collaborative Vision
Charles Slaghuis, CEO of Lievaart-Slaghuis, conveyed his enthusiasm about the alliance, noting, “Our enduring goal of efficiently addressing customer pallet needs aligns seamlessly with Rotom’s ethos. This partnership promises to bolster our mission and infuse renewed vigor into our business growth, benefitting our employees and customers.”
“The alignment in culture, ambition, and professionalism between Lievaart-Slaghuis and Rotom is striking,” offered Arjan Kuiper, CEO of Rotom Europe. “Their service-centric approach, client demographics, and geographical spread harmonize with Rotom’s footprint in the Benelux.”
Building a Sustainable Future
With Lievaart-Slaghuis under its wing, Rotom is poised to augment its product and service range in the Benelux, especially in the pallet sector. Importantly, Lievaart-Slaghuis’ seasoned management team will stay on board, merging their expertise with Rotom’s vision for sustained growth.
