Workdry International, backed by Arcus Infrastructure Partners, has acquired Vanderkamp Group, a rental wastewater pumps service provider based in the Netherlands.

Vanderkamp is based in Zwolle.

The transaction will strengthen the combined group’s rental services for the handling and treatment of water and wastewater, according to a release.

Vanderkamp’s operations in the Netherlands, including Vanderkamp Pompen and Vanderkamp Service, will continue under the name Vanderkamp – The Dutch Water Engineers, operating as the international pump rental solutions division of Workdry.

The UK-based Vanderkamp activities will be integrated into Workdry’s existing UK operations, including its Selwood pump rental solutions business, the release said.

Rick van der Kamp, CEO at Vanderkamp, will continue to lead the Vanderkamp business while also taking a senior management role within Workdry.

“This acquisition will serve as a steppingstone onto an exciting new growth trajectory for Workdry, providing a strong base for expansion into Europe and deepening the group’s core value proposition in engineered pump rental solutions,” said Jordan Cott, partner at Arcus and chair of Workdry.

Workdry provides water handling and treatment services through its Selwood and Siltbuster businesses.
