Find out how we make a difference

With Sofindev on board, Mabo has found the right partner to further support the company, with respect for its culture and values which the company attaches much value to. With the support of Sofindev, 2 acquisitions were swiftly realised, which on the one hand allowed Mabo to expand its activities to the whole Benelux, and on the other hand added an automation division to the offering in addition to the traditional forklift trucks. Partially thanks to Sofindev, these add-ons were realised and integrated in the group. In addition, Sofindev remains a strategic partner to Mabo in further identifying and analysing organic as well as external growth opportunities, with the objective of becoming the reference for manual and automated material handling solutions.
