NautaDutilh succesfully advised logistics service provider Neele-Vat on the acquisition of family business Oostvogels in Breda (NL) and Meer (B). With this acquisition, Neele-Vat strengthens its position in distribution, storage and packaging in the food, feed and chemical industry. In addition, there will be an extra storage capacity of 70,000 m2, including silo storage for dry and liquid bulk. Oostvogels, with 165 employees, continues to operate within the Neele-Vat group under its own name. Its management remains active and the takeover will have no consequences for the employees.
