BY KATHRYN JONES MAMMOET CANADA EASTERN LTD. A AGGRESSIVE GROWTH GOALS AND AN ALL-ENCOMPASSING CUSTOMER SERVICE APPROACH HAVE LANDED MAMMOET A LEADING POSITION. SERVING UP SOLUTIONS s a global leader in cross-industry heavy lifting and transportation operations, Mammoet understands that in order for companies to be successful in today’s competitive market, it is no longer enough to provide exceptional service to customers – those that offer turnkey solutions are the ones that set the bar. This philosophy has catapulted the Netherlandsbased company into international prominence with more than $1 billion (U.S.) in annual revenues and more than 3,600 employees operating from about 70 branches in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Although Mammoet’s roots date back to the early 19th century, the late Jan van Seumeren laid the foundation for the modern-day version of the company in 1966, when he started crane rental company Van Seumeren Kraanbedrijf in the Netherlands, which later transformed into Van Seumeren Holland B.V. In 1971, inland barge and floating crane company Goedkoop – established in 1807 – and crane and heavy transportation company Van Wezel – established in 1845 – merged to form Mammoet Transport. Throughout the next three decades, Van Seumeren and Mammoet were competitors, aggressively expanding their global operations through innovations and acquisitions. In 2000, Engineered Transportation and Rigging Co. (ETARCO), a heavy transport company established in Cambridge, Ontario, in 1991 partnered with Van Seumeren B.V. on several high-profile projects until it was acquired by the Dutch company in 1998. Two years later, Van Seumeren acquired Mammoet, and the entire corporation began operating as a newly enhanced version of Mammoet. ETARCO now operates as Mammoet Canada Eastern Ltd. and Mammoet Canada Western Ltd. In 2002, the inception of Mammoet Crane Inc. (MCI) offered crane rental services. Since then MCI’s fleet of cranes has increased more than tenfold, offering services throughout Canada. In 2006, Mammoet Transportation Inc. was established.
