Brand Industrial Services, known as BrandSafway, has acquired Venko Groep BV, a portfolio company of Mentha Capital, effective Jan. 1. Moving forward, the company will operate as Venko, a BrandSafway company, and become a part of Brand Energy & Infrastructure Services (Brand) in Europe.
“We’re excited to announce the closing of the acquisition of Venko,” said Dave Witsken, president of Energy and Industrial for BrandSafway. “Venko is a leading offshore coatings maintenance provider for platforms in Europe. By leveraging the highly specialized knowledge and capabilities of Venko, we will be able to provide expanded coatings services to Brand’s European customers. At the same time, with our support, Venko will now be able to offer their customers a broader inventory of access equipment and additional industrial services such as insulation and fireproofing.”
