As part of the Group’s network development strategy, Rubix recently acquired the trade and assets of Vökvatengi ehf, an Icelandic fluid power distributor, and Klijn Machines en Gereedschappen BV, a Dutch TGM supplier.
Vökvatengi is a regional Icelandic distributor of fluid power and MRO products serving the Reykjanesbær area. Founded in 1985, Vökvatengi offers a wide range of products including hoses, pipes and spare parts, as well as assembly services, while the broader MRO offer includes tools, lubricants and PPE. Vökvatengi will be fully integrated as an additional Rubix Iceland location.
Klijn supplies tools and general maintenance (TGM) products to a select number of larger accounts in the Netherlands. Founded in 1953 and currently managed by the second generation, Hans Klijn started working for the business in 1980 and took ownership in 2005. Klijn will be fully integrated into the existing Rubix branch in Gouda.
These acquisitions enable Rubix to extend its footprint while expanding its existing specialist knowledge and technical expertise in the flow and TGM categories.
Customers of both Vökvatengi and Klijn will benefit from the broader range of products and services available to them from across the Rubix Group.
