Mammoet completes acquisition of ALE

8 January 2020


Mammoet has completed the acquisition of ALE and the business will now operate as one company under the Mammoet brand.

Mammoet says the merger created the industry’s largest global provider of engineered heavy lifting and transport services.

Over the coming months a fully developed integration plan will be rolled out that will focus on bringing the two organizations together while maintaining safe and world-class service levels to their customers.

The combined business has over 140 offices and branches worldwide. Paul van Gelder, Mammoet CEO, commented: “We are looking forward to working together with our new colleagues all over the world and establishing long term relationships with our customers, existing and new. We will put all our efforts into supporting them with their activities aimed at enhancing cities, businesses and communities that are all part of the transition to a more sustainable future. As their goals increase in size and complexity, we must reshape ourselves to support them while keeping our primary focus on safety. For that, we want to understand our clients’ business and challenges better than anyone else.

“Regardless of their size, industry or location. We will keep improving our services and support them to build smarter, safer and stronger across the world. We feel a fundamental connection to these words. They express our desire to challenge conventional thinking, minimize risk and lead innovation in the industry. Which is why we have chosen to take them on board in our new brand proposition. Together, we are Smarter, Safer, Stronger.”

Michael Birch, until now member of ALE’s executive board of management, has joined Mammoet’s Executive Board that now consists of the following members:

Paul van Gelder (chief executive officer), Kees Voormolen (chief financial officer), Michael Birch (chief commercial officer), Jan Kleijn (chief operating officer), Ivonne Verlinde (chief human resources officer).
