Dutch facility management company Vebego strengthens position with German hectas Group
Vebego is taking over the entire hectas companies in Germany, the Netherlands and Austria as of 1 January 2022 from the Germany based family company Vorwerk. The transaction is subject to approval by the German Cartel Office.
"Vebego aims to further expand its activities in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands with the acquisition of hectas Group. Vebego will take over hectas in its entirety, including all employees, clients and current contracts. We look forward to continuing the positive development of hectas and to growing further together with the employees and creating more meaningful jobs", says Giuseppe Santagada, COO of Vebego for Germany and Switzerland.
"Vebego is the perfect partner for us to achieve a healthy growth. Both our employees and our customers will benefit from this strengthening, because in future we will have access to even more expertise and the extensive know-how in facility services", adds Markus Breithaupt, CEO of hectas.
The background to the transfer to Vebego is Vorwerk's future course within the framework of Strategy 2025. The emphasis here is on the direct sales concept for Vorwerk products. In this context the Vorwerk family has decided to enter into discussions with companies which match the values of the hectas Group and which support or even reinforce the group's growth ambitions. hectas will continue to operate as a service provider within the Vorwerk group.
