Remondis strengthens foothold in Poland

Europe – German waste group Remondis plans to acquire the Polish operations of Dutch competitor Van Gansewinkel for an undisclosed sum.

The sale agreement was signed in June and is said to cover all of Van Gansewinkel’s waste management and municipal services operations in Poland, which will henceforth be overseen by Warsaw-based subsidiary Remondis Polska.

Generating an annual turnover of more than PLN 100 million (US$ 26.4 million), the company employs 320 people and runs three recycling plants in the suth of the country. Remondis has been operating since 1992 in Poland, where its network of companies and branches in more than 40 towns and cities nationwide handles annually around 1.5 million tonnes of recyclable and residual materials.

The move is a ‘perfect fit’ with the company’s strategy, says Torsten Weber, managing director of Remondis International. The new regional focus will help ’round off’ the company’s existing presence in the country, he adds.
