Cor Wennekes and Atlas Services Group B.V. (Atlas Professionals), both shareholders of Mariteam Personnel Services B.V. (MPS) since its inception, have decided to merge the activities of MPS and Atlas Professionals in Capelle a/d IJssel, the Netherlands as of May 1, 2020.
MPS has built a good position as a niche player within the maritime temporary employment sector since its foundation in 2002. With a relatively small team and a personal approach, MPS has always been able to distinguish itself successfully both towards its customers and employees.
Atlas Professionals, a global HR service provider to the maritime, oil and gas and renewables industries, is pleased to take MPS under its wing. The MPS office staff will transfer to the Atlas Professionals office in Capelle a/d IJssel, so that the points of contact for customers and professionals remains the same.
Bundling of strengths
Cees Luneburg, Business Manager Atlas Professionals in Capelle a/d IJssel, expects to be able to further improve the service: “We are confident that this takeover of activities will bring positive changes for the customers and professionals of MPS. This is because Atlas has a worldwide network, with local expertise and more than 35 years of experience in supplying personnel to the maritime sector.”
"In the near future, we will stay in close contact with those involved to keep them informed of all developments. We guarantee to uphold the service they have been accustomed to from MPS over the past 18 years," Luneburg explains.
Marcel Burghouwt, Managing Director at Atlas Professionals, says: “With this combination of activities, we can continue to offer the services of MPS and thereby strengthen our position with both our customers and professionals.”
"MPS joining Atlas will give us the scaling that is necessary to continue to deliver the quality we are used to in a challenging maritime market," concludes Cor Wennekes of MPS.
