Anglo Belgian Corporation acquires E Van Wingen

16 Sep 2022

Anglo Belgian Corporation NV and E Van Wingen NV are two innovative Belgian companies that are committed to the future of the combustion engine, for example by using advanced emission aftertreatment systems, by working with renewable fuels such as hydrogen and methanol or by increasing the overall efficiency through heat recovery / cogeneration. The many synergies between these two companies have led to the acquisition of E. Van Wingen NV by Anglo Belgian Corporation NV.

In this acquisition, synergies and complementarity are the key words. Both Belgian companies are paving the path for the energy transition, a theme that will be indispensable in the coming years and will ensure growth in its activities.

Quote JP Van Wingen (CEO E. VAN WINGEN NV) :
"... We see this acquisition as a unique opportunity to take EVW to a higher level in 2022, after two generations as a family business. The possibilities offered by the exchange of knowledge and know-how and the complementarity of the activities represent a new asset. There is a bright future for our employees. Being part of a strong international technology group will give us more power at home and abroad. EVW 3.0 is born, further growth and continuity of customer support are guaranteed, but the exciting developments in the pipeline and the existing cooperation with partners/suppliers will also be continued in the new momentum. ..."

Quote Tim Berckmoes (CEO Anglo Belgian Corporation) :
"... Companies that have knowledge of combustion engines and can present great references at home and abroad and have a strong and motivated team of people and are also innovatively working with hydrogen are unique in Belgium. We are therefore very pleased with the acquisition of E VAN WINGEN. The challenges in terms of energy transition and energy security of supply are huge, but together with EVW we look to the future with confidence. The continuity for the employees and customers of EVW is assured."

Closing will take place on September 30th 2022.
