As of 17 November, Alkion Terminals and Koole Terminals are officially one group, working together toward a more sustainable future. With 20 terminals in seven countries, 900 employees and a total capacity of 5.3 million m3, Alkion Terminals and Koole Terminals have significantly increased their potential together.
The new organisation aspires to become the European market leader in innovative and integrated services for storage, processing, and logistics.
‘With this acquisition, we are joining forces,’ says John Kraakman, CEO of Koole Terminals. ‘Alkion and Koole are highly complementary, and our joint expertise now gives us the knowledge and skills to further develop and innovate our services in the storage market. Moreover, greater geographic reach creates new opportunities for our multi-terminal network customers. We can now work on a larger scale with a larger portfolio of products.’
Kraaakman continues: ‘It’s a new starting point that offers opportunities for a successful and sustainable future for all of us, and we are creating that future together, in which service to our customers is maintained to the highest possible standards for both quality and safety.’
For the time being, the names Alkion Terminals and Koole Terminals will be kept as they are.
