Blycolin takes over Laundry Wasserij Meerzicht

Blycolin purchases corporate activities of Wasserij Meerzicht

Recently, owners Rem van Dommelen and Marchel Vis reached an agreement with Blycolin about the purchase of all corporate activities of Wasserij Meerzicht. With this agreement, Blycolin takes over an important partner laundry as of March 1st. The medium-sized laundry company has a capacity of approximately 70,000 kilos of laundry per week. Wasserij Meerzicht will proceed under the name Blycolin Laundry Katwijk.

Strategic takeover

The takeover fits in with Blycolin’s strategy to realize a larger share of own laundries. Important values of Wasserij Meerzicht, such as customer-orientation, focus on quality and attention to the environment match Blycolin’s core values very well. “With this takeover, Blycolin adds a ninth laundry to its portfolio of laundries. This takeover, as the previous takeovers of the last three years, will bring us another step further in realizing the planned growth of our company and secure the continuity of our service to our customers,” says Marc van Boekholt, CEO of Blycolin. Meerzicht is the fourth laundry takeover since early 2019.

Wasserij Meerzicht and Blycolin have been working together intensively since 1972. Rem van Dommelen will resign and Marchel Vis remains at the laundry as manager. “I’m looking forward to take the next steps in the development of our laundry with Blycolin,” Marchel Vis states. Both parties will not disclose any financial details regarding the takeover.
