The two largest companies specialising in building cabins in the Netherlands have decided to join forces.
The Dubbeldam Group, which owns Metagro, will acquire all of the shares in Merford Cabins B.V. at the beginning of July. This creates a powerful, internationally operating cabin producer with a large diversity of production techniques, an innovative product line and an extensive base of know-how. Ample time will be allocated to the integration of the two companies. Metagro, as well as Merford Cabins will continue to operate in their current form in the near future.
Both companies specialise in the same product, cabins, but operate in entirely different markets, each with its own specific expertise. Merford Cabins primarily serves container ports, while Metagro is a major player in building cabins in series for vehicles and for onshore and offshore cranes.
Merford Cabins will physically merge with Metagro within two years, following the expansion of Metagro’s current production facility in Schelluinen in the Netherlands.
For the moment, nothing changes for the business relations and employees of both companies. Both Metagro and Merford Cabins will continue to be accessible through existing channels, and for the time being all business operations will continue as before. In the meantime, a great deal of effort will be devoted to the integration of both companies behind the scenes.
