Hoover acquires Consult Supply

hooverHoover Container Solutions, headquartered in Houston Texas, has acquired Consult Supply, an offshore container provider based in Stavanger, Norway.  The expansion into the Norwegian market will add to Hoover’s existing locations in Australia, Malaysia, Brazil, Abu Dhabi and the United States.  This purchase provides Hoover an additional channel to offer its range of intermediate bulk containers (“IBCs”), offshore containers, cargo carrying units (“CCUs”), container workshops and ISO tank container products. Consult Supply, established in 1989, currently services the European and Asian offshore markets with chemical tanks, CCUs, baskets, mudskips and custom container workshops.

Jan Sekse, General Manager of Consult Supply, said, “Consult is proud to have built a strong company over the past 23 years and we believe joining the Hoover Group of companies will allow Consult to become part of a global team.  The additional products, services, design and manufacturing capabilities that Hoover brings will only serve to provide a stronger offering for our customers in Norway.”  Jan Sekse and his team in Stavanger will continue to manage the Norwegian operations.

“We are very pleased to welcome Consult Supply to the Hoover team,” comments Chairman and CEO Donald W. Young. “Jan and his team will be a tremendous asset to Hoover as they add considerably to our already strong capabilities in the manufacturing, rental, service, design and technical expertise surrounding offshore containers.”  The acquisition of Consult Supply supports Hoover’s plan to become a comprehensive solution for container needs in the international marketplace.  Hoover’s products and services now are available at Hoover managed facilities in Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America.
