We are proud to announce that Height Specialists will become part of Bilfinger as of 01-01-2021. Height Specialists will continue under the name ‘Bilfinger Height Specialists’. This collaboration fits seamlessly with the demand of clients from Belgium and the Netherlands to offer alternative solutions for access to height. In addition, we can now both offer a total package for various integrated maintenance services at height.
For the past 25 years Height Specialists has focused on growth, development and experience. In these years we have grown into a strong player in the market of rope access and have our own IRATA training center. Because of the (rope) techniques we use, we are able to make the inaccessible accessible when other methods – such as scaffolding or aerial work platforms – are not possible, are not safe or have a negative impact on the environment.
Henri Hoogenes, Managing Director at Height Specialists: “By joining the Bilfinger team, we combine our strengths to make the inaccessible accessible for customers. We create an integrated service portfolio in inspection, maintenance, insulation, painting and repair that allows us to respond to increasing requests in the industry for rope access solutions. By joining Bilfinger we can build on their market position and strong customer relationships in the process industry throughout the BeNe region.”
Bilfinger is no unknown party for Height Specialists. In recent years we have worked together a lot, which has enabled us to bring multiple projects to a success. The activities of both companies complement each other perfectly. We both have extensive experience, knowledge and expertise in house. We share the same standards, values, client approach and quality vision.
Bilfinger has more than 3,000 employees in Belgium and the Netherlands and works for clients such as Shell, BP, Huntsman, BASF and INEOS. The portfolio consists of services around the entire life cycle of industrial installations such as project consultancy, engineering, procurement and manufacturing, piping & mechanical, electrical & instrumentation, insulation, scaffolding construction, conservation and other related maintenance and operational services.
Thierry Burki, CEO of Bilfinger Industrial Services Belgium/Netherlands: “The acquisition of Height Specialists enables us to offer our customers the best option for access at height to their installations. In addition, we are responding to our customers’ demand for a total solution for monitoring the integrity, performance optimization and lifespan of installations. Our goal is to reduce maintenance costs and to add bottom line value”.
Height Specialists and Bilfinger have found a reliable partner in each other and are looking forward to the future with confidence. We remain the trusted address for rope access and guarantee the service we have been providing you for the past 25 years!
