VHB Groep and Rock Solid, a great match

VHB Groep (NRC and Aerinnova) strengthens its position in the United Kingdom with the strategic acquisition of Rock Solid BV.

On the 28th of June, VHB Groep took  a large and significant strategic step in the Europe wide field of responsible recycling and the recovery of valuable raw materials. The acquisition of the shares of well established companies Rock Solid BV (NL) and Rock Solid Processing Ltd (UK) enables VHB to offer and provide a more comprehensive and well rounded solution to customers.  

History and Future

Rock Solid was founded 17 years ago by Hans van Craaikamp and Peter Bleeker, specialising in the processing of IBA incinerator bottom ash, coupled with the sales and marketing of IBAA aggregates and recovered ferrous and non-ferrous metals.  

Passion for raw materials Rock Solid very much shares VHB’s passion for recovering valuable raw materials from IBA incinerator bottom ash, and on that basis, VHB are pleased to confirm that the current management of Rock Solid will stay on, ensuring a smooth transition for our customers and new clients alike.  

As a Dutch family business with a 90-year history, VHB Groep already has quite a past to look back on. With this step, VHB can further reinforce and secure its position for the future. Everyone at VHB looks forward to further growth and development together with familiar and new faces in the organisation, and VHB extends a warm welcome to all new staff joining from Rock Solid with the motto: ‘Welcome on board and to the VHB family’.
