Brabant Groep acquires Euroblast

Brabant Groep from Oosterhout, part of the Industriefonds of Anders Invest, has acquired the shares of Euroblast N.V. from Belgium.

Brabant Groep focuses on corrosion prevention projects for various sectors such as tank construction, steel construction, petrochemicals, civil engineering, utility construction, shipbuilding and energy. Euroblast is located near the port of Antwerp and specializes in blasting and preserving steel plates for shipbuilding, tank construction, offshore applications and industry and works for Belgian, European and intercontinental customers.

With the acquisition of Euroblast, Brabant Groep obtains greater geographical coverage and can serve its customers more widely. In addition, synergies can be achieved through more efficient business operations, improved use of the various locations and the sharing of logistics, facilities and work processes. Euroblast will continue to operate under its own name.

This is the second expansion for Brabant Groep this year. In June, a merger between the Brabant Group entity Straco Heerenveen and Staal Technische Centrum Noord-Nederland (STC) was realised. Straco Heerenveen is active in the field of wet painting and powder coating. STC is active in blasting and wet coating applications. In time, the facilities will be expanded with a new aluminum coating line.
