GLOBAL HISTORY

GLOBAL HISTORY

In 1985 Manuchar was incorporated to the activities of A. Maas & Co, a group that was founded in 1880 and evolved into a strong logistics group over the years. In 2007 Ackermans & van Haaren (a listed BEL20 company) entered as an additional strategic shareholder.

Today we have a network of more than 50 affiliates worldwide, representing Manuchar in 140 locations.

 

Achievements

  • At Unilever’s Partner to Win Event in London, Manuchar received the “Capacity and Capability Building” Award in the presence of Unilever’s CEO Paul Polman. Manuchar is the only company worldwide to have received a Partner to Win award for the second year in a row since Partner to Win was launched in 2010. 2013 we won the Award for Operational Excellence. If you know that Unilever counts 100,000 suppliers worldwide including Cargill, BASF, Bayer, Novozymes, Solvay, etc., this is a truly fantastic achievement!
