IMAP is pleased to announce that Wiko Isolatietechniek en Steigerbouw (“Wiko”), an established Dutch insulation technology and scaffolding service specialist for various industrial sectors, has been acquired by the Remondis Maintenance and Services group (“RMS”).
Wiko, founded in 1968 and headquartered in Rotterdam, is a unique family business offering outstanding value for over 50 years. The company specializes in insulation and scaffolding and offers its clients a multidisciplinary portfolio of services, including thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, fireproof penetrations, scaffolding, rope access, and tracing. Wiko has a strong presence in industrial sectors such as Petrochemical, Chemical, Energy, Food, Ship- and Yacht Building as well as Offshore, where it performs new construction, renovation and repair work. The company has more than 150 employees. Following the takeover, Wiko’s management will continue to lead the organization with the same vision and service orientation.

The Rethmann-Group operates four corporate groups: Remondis (environmental and water management and industrial services), Rhenus (logistic services), Saria (Recycling), and Transdev (public transport operator) with a combined revenue of more than EUR21 billion. RMS is active in industrial services and its goal is to become an integrated industrial services provider for Dutch industry. It is already active in the Dutch industrial market via REYM, a company specialized in industrial cleaning. With the acquisition of Wiko, RMS expands its portfolio to include insulation and scaffolding services.
