MAUSER Group and Janus Vaten B.V. Combine Forces in NCG France

MAUSER Group and Janus Vaten B.V. signed a joint venture agreement “NCG France North” extending their successful cooperation to the North of France. MAUSER sells 49% of shares in NCG France to Janus Vaten B.V.

MAUSER’s facility including all employees in Saint-Amand-les-Eaux will continue operations under management of Directeur Genéral Pim Janus. The sales team will consist of Aurelien Naye, Ton & Maarten Janus.

Through this cooperation, MAUSER will better be able to serve its customers in the Belgium and Northern France region. NCG France will profit from the enhanced experience that Janus Vaten B.V. has gathered in the reconditioning of industrial packaging over many years. NCG France will continue IBC washing, re-bottling and laundry services as well as HDPE recycling services.

MAUSER and Janus already joined forces for the Benelux market in 2006 in NCG Benelux, and the combination of strengths has proven to be very successful to both partners.
