Christeyns acquires the Spanish Betelgeux
(January, 2018) Christeyns, headquartered in East Bridgewater, MA, expands its activities in Spain and Portugal with the acquisition of Betelgeux, Spanish producer of hygiene products for the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
Established in Ador (Valencia, Spain) in 1986, Betelgeux produces over 5,000 tons of industrial cleaning and disinfection products. During the last few years, Christeyns and Betelgeux have already worked closely together in the food hygiene market. This collaboration led to a fruitful relationship of mutual trust.
Alain Bostoen, owner of Christeyns: ‘With its top quality products, innovative concepts and well-trained people, Betelgeux is a valuable addition to our own Christeyns Food Hygiene department. I am happy to welcome the complete Betelgeux team, which consists of 50 people, to the Christeyns family. Their professional know-how, market knowledge, reputation and product portfolio will help us to expand our activities and to continue shaping the Christeyns strategy.’
At the beginning of 2018, Christeyns will start with the expansion of the production facilities in Ador, which will make it possible to double the production capacity. Once the works are completed, the strategic management of Christeyns Food Hygiene for the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America will be centralized from the new buildings.
