A recent merger has created industry’s largest global provider of engineered heavy lifting and transport services.

Mammoet has confirmed that as of January 8, 2020, the acquisition of ALE has been completed, and the businesses will now operate as one company under the Mammoet brand.

Over the coming months a fully developed integration plan will be rolled out that will focus on bringing the two organizations together while maintaining safe and world-class service levels to customers. The global coverage of the combined business runs to over 140 offices and branches worldwide.

This significantly enhances scalability, innovation capabilities and efficient mobilization, like no one else in the industry. This enhances its ability to deliver in the safest, most efficient and cost-effective way possible, from single day local jobs to multi-year megaprojects.”
