Investment Van Wellen Storage

Van Wellen Storage recently acquired an interest in the real estate of Van Moer Logistics, after this real estate was split off from the logistics activities.
With this transaction, Van Moer and Van Wellen continue their cooperation in the Port of Antwerp and continue to build on the future.

Jo Van Moer, founder and CEO of Van Moer Logistics:
“We are delighted that we have been able to complete the transaction with the Van Wellen family. We have been working very well together for years and are convinced that the extensive knowledge and experience of our partner will lead to a further sustainable expansion of our logistics real estate activities.”

Louis Van Wellen & Laurens Van Wellen:
“We are also very satisfied that at the end of an eventful year we were able to successfully conclude the deal with the Van Moer family.
A sale and rent back transaction reflects the perfect symbiosis. As a real estate specialist, we expand our portfolio and contribute our sustainable knowledge of logistics real estate. The collaboration between both groups results in a strong team that is ready for an ambitious future, in which the necessary synergies can be achieved."

Capital increase Van Moer Logistics

At the same time, Jo Van Moer has implemented a substantial capital increase in the logistics activities of his company, which will also enable the strong growth of this business unit to be continued.

Jo Van Moer:
“In 2020 our company celebrated its 30th anniversary. Because of the corona crisis, we have not been able to celebrate this anniversary, but it is clear that we are still burning with ambition. The significant increase in our operating capital makes it possible to achieve these ambitious goals.

2021 is already promising: we will, among other things, expand our tank container depot in Zwijndrecht, renew our repair department and the cleaning lines, install solar panels in 2 of our warehouses and continue to make are fleet more sustainable. Together with our 1,358 employees, we are eagerly and confidently looking forward to the coming years.”

Both transactions were guided by Forsite and Quorum Law.
