Ermewa Group acquires DEMI Container Services BV
Ermewa Group is broadening its services to customers using tank containers by acquiring DEMI Container Services BV (DEMI) from the Van Zomeren family. Over nearly 25 years, they have established DEMI as a market leader in the maintenance and repair of tank containers in the Netherlands. DEMI works primarily with special tank containers for liquids, liquefied gases and cryogenic gases. We are pleased that the Van Zomeren family will continue to be fully involved in day-to-day running of the business.
“With this transaction, Ermewa Group strengthens its global position in tank containers, particularly those for special liquids, gas and cryogenic gases. This supports our long established and recognized strategy of providing and supporting the largest specialized fleet of equipment worldwide” says Ermewa Group.”
In 2018 Ermewa Group’s subsidiary, EUROTAINER, purchased Taylor Minster Leasing, a specialized owner-managed tank container leasing company. In 2019, Ermewa Group further strengthened its tank container leasing position by acquiring Raffles Lease and its 13,500 tank containers. With these acquisitions, the Ermewa Group positioned itself at the forefront of tank container leasing with a worldwide fleet of more than 60,000 tank containers, comprising both specials and standard tanks.
