Akzo Nobel Base Chemicals Stork has already acquired the Technical Services department of Akzo Nobel Base Chemicals on the Botlek industrial site. Akzo Nobel Base Chemicals will increasingly concentrate on its core activities in the future. This strategy leads to the outsourcing of the Technical Services activities. Approximately 160 employees of the Technical Services department will be transferred to Stork.
DSM Research DSM Research specialises in carrying out and providing support for research activities. To ensure the continuity of its technical services, DSM Research has decided to outsource its Technical Services department that has 16 employees to Stork, for which these activities are part of the core business.
With these recent acquisitions, Stork Industry Services is strengthening its activities in the maintenance and modifications field in the process industry. Key elements of its strategy are the building of long-term relationships and the further development and strengthening of core competences. The acquisitions are an excellent fit for this strategic direction.
