Globitas acquires the HEGO company in stainless steel and aluminum
The investment company Globitas has announced that it has successfully completed the acquisition of HEGO. The acquisition by Globitas gives a strong boost to HEGO’s growth ambitions. With this new shareholder, the company is entering a new phase by focusing on innovation, digitization and new business models.
Since 1977, HEGO has been active as an international wholesaler and service center in the trade and processing of stainless steel and aluminum. HEGO offers a wide range of stainless steel and aluminum sheets and coils in various sizes and alloys, available direct from stock.
Commercial Director André van der Veen commented on this acquisition,
“With Globitas as the new shareholder of our company, we are very optimistic about the future. With the additional knowledge and expertise that Globitas brings, we can achieve the course already set to reach our ambitious goals even faster. In the years to come, we will become one of the most important players in stainless steel and aluminum, in the Netherlands and far beyond. On behalf of all HEGO employees, I would like to thank Wim and Fabien Gort for their commitment and unwavering support over the years. Without them, HEGO could never have become what we are today.
