Boasso Global B.V. recently completed the acquisitions of FDW Holdings B.V., Moerdijk Tankcontainer Repair, B.V., Red Dot Services B.V. and Moerdijk Tankcontainer Trading, B.V., collectively known as Frans de Wit (FDW) in The Netherlands.

FDW is a leading ISO tank services and trucking business located in Moerdijk, The Netherlands. Boasso acquired FDW from shareholders Lars de Wit and Remco Verhaegen.

“We are very excited about the acquisition of Frans de Wit, which adds another strong operating business for Boasso in the critically important European port areas of Antwerp and Rotterdam,” said Joe Troy, chairman and CEO of Boasso Global. “We are equally pleased that Lars and Remco will both be staying on with Boasso to not only ensure a smooth transition, but also add strength to our talented operating team in Europe.
