Delft-based Rojo Steigerbouw (part of Steeds Hoger Holding) has acquired Schiedam-based Post Steigers as of Wednesday 10 May. Post Steigers celebrates its 77th anniversary this year and since 2021 is mainly specialized in (inner-city) scaffolding construction and rental for renovation and maintenance. Financial details of the transaction will not be disclosed.
"Post Steigers complements our services in vertical construction logistics excellently," says Managing Director Fred Enterman. Last year Rojo Steigerbouw acquired Nivo Steigerwerken (Klundert) and Mol Lifting (Dordrecht), now Post Steigers (Schiedam, 80 employees including subcontractors) is added. The acquisition creates a company with approximately 415 employees (partly subcontracted) with a consolidated annual turnover of more than €54 million.
Almost 1 million m2 of scaffolding material and 300 construction lifts
Fred Enterman: "Post has been active in the renovation and maintenance market (including periodic safety inspection) for many years and we strongly believe in the connection we are now making between the four companies mentioned. We have grown into the largest specialist in this field in the Netherlands."
In total, the combination of companies has almost 1 million m2 of scaffolding material and almost 300 construction lifts in all kinds of variants.
Mario Post, Director of Post Steigers Schiedam, sees this step for Post as a logical development in the current construction market. "The acquisitions that took place last year already resulted in the strong player that we will now fall under, but we fit seamlessly into this consortium with our expertise: we join forces, we can guarantee our customers an even better service and we contribute substantially to the growth of Steeds Hoger Holding. We are convinced that this acquisition will help us to achieve our ambitions and to further strengthen our position as a major player in inner-city renovation and maintenance," says Mario Post, who will remain with Post Steigers.
Cor and Tim Post will leave the company after a transition period.
Hayo van Houten and Tim Hendriks of 365 Capital are proud that, together with the other shareholders, they have been able to reinforce the group further. "We welcome Mario Post as a new co-shareholder and look forward to continue building on the future of the leading Dutch player in the rental of scaffolding, support and construction hoists with the existing team of Rojo, Nivo, Mol and the Post team.
