Gosselin Group continues growth trajectory with the acquisition of Antwerp Cargo Movers
Antwerp Cargo Movers, a fast-growing and successful company from Antwerp, can now call off its search for a new shareholder. They found the perfect partner to support their growth ambitions in the Gosselin Group, whose 90 years of experience in the logistics sector played a major role in this decision.
Thanks to Gosselin's support, Antwerp Cargo Movers will be able to continue to grow as an independent company. They will be able to rely on Gosselin’s back office solutions and logistical support, among other things.
“This acquisition is an excellent opportunity for Gosselin to further develop our activities,” explains Marc Smet, CEO of the Gosselin Group, “SDM Corporate Finance Group played an advisory role in this deal, which stipulates that Gosselin now controls 100% of ACM’s shares.”
Founded in 1930, Gosselin currently employs more than 975 people who generate total sales of over 450 million Euros. Gosselin’s headquarters is located on the Albert Canal in Deurne where the container terminal connects the Port of Antwerp Bruges and the Port of Rotterdam with the European hinterland. With 56 offices in 34 countries, the company has strong representation in Europe, Eastern Europe, Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia and China. The Gosselin Group consists of two divisions: Gosselin Moving and Gosselin Logistics.
