This transaction is in line with ABEO's strategic plan combining organic growth with targeted acquisitions in order to add to the brand portfolio, penetrate new markets more effectively and consolidate more mature markets.

ABEO Group CEO Olivier Estèves said: “Through the Bosan acquisition, we are seizing a fantastic opportunity to consolidate our position on the Benelux market. This acquisition, which is facilitated by a shared corporate culture, boosts our capacity to grow our market share and thus achieve our 2020 target of €300m in revenue.”

Richard and Marieke Ten Bos, Bosan's executive managers, stated: “We are delighted with this merger, which will ensure the future of Bosan for both customers and employees. This transaction carried out with a Group of ABEO's stature will also enable Bosan to expand into new markets.”
