Windward Holding B.V. (“Windward”) and JZ Logistics Holding (overseas) Co. Limited (“JZL”) today announced that JZL have acquired a majority interest in North Sea Tankers B.V. (“NST”) from Windward.
NST operates a fleet of chemical tankers serving the chemical market in North West Europe and the Mediterranean. Under the new ownership structure, NST is set to strengthen its fleet composition and market presence.
With the entry of JZL as majority shareholder, NST will enjoy the backing of a financially strong partner having a strategic view to further develop its global chemical logistics services. Through increased investments in its fleet and back office, the company aims to continue building the platform for high quality transportation of chemicals. NST will continue to operate from its offices in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
“This is a logical move for both JZL and NST. The investment provides JZL with a European platform from which global and regional European shipping presence can be further developed. NST will now benefit from JZL’s shipping expertise and financial muscle” said Niclas Kappelin, founder and CEO of NST.
