SCHÜTZ acquires Belgian reconditioner Remi Tack

SCHÜTZ has signed a purchase agreement for 100 % of the shares in Remi Tack.

The Belgian supplier of IBCs and plastic drums based in Estaimpuis was founded in 1999 and is one of the leading companies in the reconditioning industry in Benelux. With its 53 employees, Remi Tack stands for the highest flexibility, quality and sustainability.  

The family-run company reconditions returned packaging in extensive processes in compliance with the latest environmental, safety and quality standards. In its operations, Remi Tack focuses on the environment and sustainability: for example, the company’s use of fresh process water has been reduced by more than 44 % by using recycled, filtered process water in the initial steps of the washing processes; Remi Tack’s trailer fleet includes mega trailers with a capacity of 68 IBCs instead of 52 IBCs in a standard trailer and the roof is full of solar panels. SCHÜTZ and Remi Tack have a long-standing partnership.  

Greater service depth 

The acquisition creates synergies for both companies and provides customers with an even greater service depth.  

“We are grateful for the confidence and faith placed in us by the owner Tom Tack and his management team,” says Roland Strassburger, SCHÜTZ CEO.  

“The acquisition enables us to expand the portfolio of services for our customers in the Benelux region. This move sees us moving even closer to our customers and, together with the Remi Tack team, we are further strengthening our commitment to a sustainable circular economy.”  

Tom Tack, owner of Remi Tack, says: “From our many years of working together as partners, we know that Remi Tack is in excellent hands with SCHÜTZ. The philosophies of our two-family businesses are a perfect match. We know that SCHÜTZ will use its significant innovative strength to drive the further development of our industrial packaging product range and offer an even wider range of reprocessing and recycling services.”
