Silonor – a company offering storage and handling facilities for powdered products and cements – strengthens DMT’s terminal and its presence in the Grand Port Maritime de Dunkerque.
DMT acquired Silonor from Secil, a Portuguese cement group, a major player in the production and sale of cement, concrete, aggregates, mortars and hydraulic lime, present on four continents.
DMT will thus strengthen its position in the Great Maritime Port of Dunkirk, to ensure the development of its logistics and distribution activities. Located at the center of the Paris/London/Brussels triangle, Dunkirk is a key HUB for reaching a market of more than 100 million consumers.
De Gaulle Fleurance (Anker Sorensen, partner, Brice Mathieu, senior counsel, and Paul Lefevre, associate handling the corporate aspects, and Sophie Weill, senior counsel, handling the public law and regulatory aspects) assisted Secil in this transaction.
“We are delighted to have assisted a major player in the manufacture, storage and distribution of cement and lime and to have contributed to the success of this transaction,” said Anker Sorensen, partner at De Gaulle Fleurance. “This sale allows DMT to strengthen its presence in the Great Maritime Port of Dunkirk, and to gain access to a major trading hub in Western Europe.
The law firm Reinhart Marville Torre advised DMT in this transaction.
