Mammoet Completes ALE Acquisition

Merger Creates Global Staff Approaching 6,800

Heavy-lift specialist Mammoet has completed its acquisition of UK-based breakbulk specialist ALE.

The firm now plans to roll-out a fully developed integration plan over the coming months to bring the two organizations together. The deal creates a combined heavy-lift and transport company with about 6,800 employees and some of the largest capacity cranes in the business.

“We are looking forward to working together with our new colleagues all over the world ... We will put all our efforts into supporting them with their activities aimed at enhancing cities, businesses and communities that are all part of the transition to a more sustainable future. As their goals increase in size and complexity, we must reshape ourselves to support them while keeping our primary focus on safety,” said Paul van Gelder, CEO of Mammoet. 

Dutch firm Mammoet is headquartered in Schiedam and is one of the oldest heavy-lift firms in the world, delivering a range of project cargo transportation, logistic planning and crane rental services.
