Stokota and HMK Bilcon announce strategic partnership

Stokota NV and HMK Bilcon A/S, specialists in specific transport solutions, are pleased to announce a new strategic partnership. Signed in March 2013, the agreement is expected to further enhance both companies’ leading positions in European markets and provide significant new benefits for their customers.
With production sites in Poland, service and repair centres in Belgium and France, and operations across Europe, Stokota is the market leader in the Fuels & Energy and Waste & Cleaning segments in Belgium, Poland and northern France. The company occupies a strong position in other European countries through its dealer network.
HMK Bilcon, with production facilities in Denmark and an extensive service network throughout the Nordics, is the market leader in the Fuels & Energy, Feed and Defense Solutions segments in the Nordic Region. The company also specializes in mobile healthcare solutions, including mobile blood banks, and mobile display solutions.
As part of the agreement, the two companies will distribute each other’s products, providing customers in a wide swath of Europe with access to a broader portfolio of solutions. They will also share manufacturing facilities, which will enable both companies to deliver larger volumes with shorter lead times – including customized solutions.
Stokota CEO Mario Hertegonne is very pleased with the agreement. “It will provide a foundation for significant growth in sales of Stokota products in the Nordic market,” he explained, also noting the importance of fully utilizing the companies’ high-performance manufacturing facilities in Poland.
