BIS Expands in Benelux; 3M Buys Dailys Ltd.

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Comment | More

The BIS Group has formed a new industrial surface protection unit in the wake of its acquisition of a majority stake in Mobile Brabant.

The purchase, announced July 8, resulted in the formation of Brabant Mobile BIS, an independent unit within BIS Industrial Services Nederland B.V. that will specialize in industrial surface protection.

"We have been working closely with [Mobile Brabant] for more than 10 years in surface protection activities for SIP (scaffolding, insulation, painting) contracts," said Bert van der Burght, general manager of the BIS Group in the Netherlands and Belgium. "The acquisition of this company will now allow us to broaden our range of services in Benelux in a crucial area, ensuring that we are well positioned to accommodate our customers' rising demand for SIP contracts."

With annual revenues of about 250 million euros (about $320 million USD), the BIS Group already dominates the industrial scaffolding market in Benelux and is a major provider of insulation and piping.

Mobile Brabant specializes in blasting and coating for the tank building, petrochemical, civil engineering, shipbuilding and energy industries. It has 130 employees and annual revenues of 22 million euros (about $28 million USD).

3M Buys Dailys Ltd.

The 3M Company has acquired Dailys Ltd., a UK-based supplier of industrial protective clothing, the companies have announced.

"This acquisition supports our strategic direction by broadening our protective apparel portfolio," said Julie Bushman, vice president and general manager, 3M Occupational Health and Environmental Safety Division.

Jim McSheffrey, managing director, 3M United Kingdom, said: "Adding products from Dailys will accelerate our presence in disposable protective clothing not only in the U.K. but globally as well."

Family-owned Dailys primarily produces chemical protective coveralls for industrial use. Its brands include Macrobond, Candour FR and Candex.
