HealthLink Europe & International acquired by Base Logistics Group


Base Logistics Group, supported by Waterland Private Equity Investments, has announced the acquisition of HealthLink Europe & International. With offices in ‘s-Hertogenbosch (Netherlands), Raleigh (USA) and Memphis (USA), HealthLink is a logistics outsourcing partner for life science manufacturing companies. From its offices in The Netherlands and the United States, Healthlink offers support in the field of logistics, order-to-cash and customer service. The activities and strategy of the service provider from ‘s-Hertogenbosch fit well with those of Base Logistics, which strengthens its position in The Netherlands with the acquisition and realizes a strong position in the United States. Both organizations will continue to operate under their own names.

Base Logistics’ CEO Robin Voet about the acquisition: “HealthLink has been a partner for a long time, and the collaboration has grown ever since. HealthLink makes extensive use of our Transport and Warehouse Management System Klairy, which has become the basis of HealthLink’s strong service to its customers. HealthLink is a healthy and ambitious organization, so it fits well within the culture and future plans of Base Logistics.” The acquisition offers Base Logistics the opportunity to strengthen its position in the North American market. Voet explains: “In the field of Service Parts Logistics, we are already an important player in Europe, and we have built up a healthy customer base in America. Thanks to the acquisition of HealthLink, we are able to further develop our own SPL activities from HealthLink’s Memphis office.”

HealthLink’s COO Joost van den Heuvel, who will continue as MD HealthLink Europe, further clarifies: “The synergy between our companies is high. That is also the reason we have been able to expand our cooperation in recent years. The acquisition is actually a logical consequence of this cooperation.” “It offers both HealthLink and Base Logistics the opportunity to further improve and expand services for our customers on a global level,” says Rick Hughes, President of HealthLink and continuing as MD HealthLink North America.

Waterland Private Equity Investments added Base Logistics to its investment portfolio at the end of last year, to develop Base Logistics into an internationally leading logistics organization through organic growth and selective acquisitions. The acquisition of HealthLink is the first step in the execution of its buy-and-build strategy. Active in sectors that experience the influence of fundamental trends like Outsourcing, Leisure & Luxury, Aging and Sustainability, Waterland has recently raised its seventh investment fund with a total size of $ 2.4 billion.
