AMP Group acquires Omega Logistics business operations

Houten, 23 May 2022 – Our portfolio company AMP is taking its second step in the buy-and-build strategy with the acquisition of the business activities of Omega Logistics, a medical logistics provider. Through this acquisition, which was made possible in part by Holland Capital, AMP strengthens its position within the medical logistics market.

Omega Logistics is a specialized logistics service provider that is primarily active in the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. The organization has its own temperature controlled distribution network that services hospitals, pharmacies, health care institutions and patients. Recently, the activities of Omega have been incorporated in Jan de Rijk Benelux, whose activities are now taken over by AMP.

By joining forces, AMP strengthens its position within the strongly growing strategic medical logistics market in both B2C and B2B. Marco van der Klij, Managing Director of AMP Group: “By merging the distribution network of Omega with ours, we can further expand the scale of our medical logistics network. This will allow us to play an even bigger role in this growing market.”

Fred Westdijk, CEO Jan de Rijk Logistics / Omega Logistics: “A clear market focus is crucial to serve customers successfully. The continued growth of Jan de Rijk Logistics in other business units has made the management decide to divest the activities of Omega Logistics in order to create more room for growth in other activities such as international transport, Benelux distribution, freight forwarding, contract logistics and intermodal transport. We are convinced that we found a good home for our customers and staff in AMP.”

Holland Capital has been involved as a shareholder in AMP since 2020. It actively supports the management in the strategic development of the company. Hubert Verbeek, managing partner Holland Capital: “The acquisition of Omega Logistics is, after joining forces with Delta Logistics at the end of last year, a great step in our buy-and-build strategy. With this, AMP further strengthens its leading position in medical logistics.”
