Vremac has a strong global client base in multiple end markets. Renowned customers include Caterpillar, Mammoet, SPIE, Huisman and Boskalis. Vremac operates from a custom-build facility in Apeldoorn that was opened in 2017 and employs 90 full-time employees.

Oaklins' teams in the Netherlands and Belgium advised the sellers in this transaction.

M&A sell-side
“IHC’s strategy is to be a supplier of reliable and innovative equipment, vessels and services, and we have therefore decided that it would be better for Vremac to team up with a new strategic partner. In this way, Vremac will be able to realize its ambition for further growth and make optimal use of its potential and recently upgraded facility.”
