Main advises Wilchem at acquisition by VolkerWessels
On November 30, 2011 Wilchem BV is acquired by KWS Infra, part of VolkerWessels. Main Corporate Finance consulted Wilchem during the sale. Wilchem is specialized in environmental accident management. The employees are ready, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, to solve the consequences of environmental accidents and calamities. Main has advised Wilchem during the complete selling process. Main has selected potential buyers, written an information memorandum, serviced the due diligence process and negotiated the terms of the transaction with the buyer. For years Wilchem has a strong position in the Rijnmond region. The acquisition strengthens the position of KWS Infra within the infrastructure in the Netherlands and broadens the services KWS Infra can offer. Wilchem is founded in 1993 and in the years that followed the company has created a unique position in sustainable solutions for the consequences of environmental accidents and calamities. The company has locations in Papendrecht and Zaandam and provides its services for amongst others Rijkswaterstaat and Havenbedrijf Rotterdam. Wilchem, with its 42 employees, will remain active using its own name.
