On 1 April 2017, Kuiken Groep (“Kuiken”) will transfer the distribution rights for Sennebogen Crane Line products in the Benelux to dealers Van den Heuvel Cranes & Services B.V. (“Van den Heuvel”) and Van Haut NV (“Van Haut”). Kuiken will continue to be the exclusive distributor for Sennebogen’s Green Line products in the Benelux.
The transfer of the activities related to the Sennebogen Crane Line products (crawler cranes and telescopic cranes), will enable Kuiken to increase the focus in its services to customers. Kuiken will retain distribution rights for Sennebogen Green Line products (material handling and recycling equipment), which have for many years been an excellent strategic fit with the high-quality, powerful machines of Volvo Construction Equipment, for which Kuiken is also the exclusive distributor in the Benelux.
Dealers Van den Heuvel and Van Haut will take over the representation of the Sennebogen Crane Line products in the Netherlands and Belgium respectively. Their many years of experience and expertise in the sector will safeguard quality and service for customers.
Heino Westdijk, CEO of Kuiken Groep, says: “Sennebogen has carefully selected suitable parties to take over the distribution of Sennebogen Crane Line products, to safeguard continuity in the Benelux market. Together we will ensure that the transition goes smoothly, so customers will continue to receive the high-quality products and services they are accustomed to. Our increased focus will enable us to continue to optimise our services to our clients as a full-service distributor of the strong brands Sennebogen Green Line and Volvo Construction Equipment.”
Van Haut CEO Dries Van Haut says: “We are very pleased that Sennebogen’s Crane Line products are returning to us after almost a decade. The Crane Line product range is also an excellent fit with Van Haut’s total range of products in Belgium.”
Marc Timmerman, CEO of Van den Heuvel: “We welcome Sennebogen’s Crane Line products to our product range. This move will enable us to provide added value to our customers in the Dutch market.”
