Eurosafe Solutions BV purchases R3B Safety & Rescue in Zevenbergen
Eurosafe Solutions Group has, from 28 Ferbruary 2020, taken over all activities of R3B Safety & Rescue. This acquisition further expands Eurosafe Solutions product and service offering, and strengthens the market position of both parties as experts in the field of safety, rescue, evacuation and assistance in confined spaces and from height.
The strong financial position and growth of Eurosafe makes acquisition possible
Eurosafe Solutions has grown organically over the past 5 years through improved management and expansion of the product and services portfolio and therefore a broadening of markets. This has now given us the position and opportunity, through a targeted acquisition, to consolidate this growth and make the organisation even more stable. The acquisition of R3B Safety & Rescue allows us to truly offer our clients a total solution, and greatly strengthen our training provision.
Increased opportunities within the current market
R3B Safety & Rescue is an expert in the field of safety and assistance in industry and for the emergency services, with its own purpose built testing and training center. This merger offers both R3B Safety & Rescue and Eurosafe Solutions the opportunity to further professionalise the organisation, expand the market place and to further strengthen there joint position.
Both parties have been cooperating with each other for some time, particularly with regard to training courses for safe working at heights and in confined spaces. Rodney Sebregts, director of R3B Safety & Rescue, says: “The collaboration with Eurosafe Solutions has been pleasant from the start and brought growth for both parties. Gradually, there was a mutual need to join forces in the field of services, training and equipment in one organization. ” Raymond Keijzer, Eurosafe Solutions Business Unit Manager for confined spaces and personal protective equipment, has supervised the collaboration from the start with Rodney.
Together we stand stronger
“R3B Safety & Rescue has thoroughly shared its knowledge with our employees and clients,” says Mark Dubbink, director of Eurosafe Solutions BV. “As a result, the knowledge of our engineers, the PPE department and the sales team has grown to such an extent that we are now also able to put this knowledge into practice. With the inclusion of R3B in the Eurosafe Solutions Group, the strengths of two strong market parties are combined. ”
“R3B is able to achieve further growth and development in training & education through the greater commercial power from the Eurosafe network. The expertise of R3B Safety & Rescue in turn offers Eurosafe Solutions the opportunity to grow in the area of rope access, standby rescue teams, safety and rescue training and to further expand the sale of specialist equipment, ”says Dubbink.
Name "R3B Safety & Rescue" will be retained
From March 1, 2020, R3B’s training activities, services, materials sales and rentals will be continued by R3B as part of the Eurosafe Solutions Group. The visiting location of R3B Safety & Rescue in the South of the Netherlands remains located in Zevenbergen at Blokweg 17. The acquisition therefore has minimal impact on R3B employees.
Rodney Sebregts, the current director of R3B Safety & Rescue, remains associated with the company as director. He is responsible for day-to-day management and for the development of a second training and education center in Zwolle and for expanding the secondment department for safety professionals and standby rescue teams.
