SGS is pleased to announce the acquisition of Maco Customs Service (Maco), headquartered in Roermond, the Netherlands.

Maco is a full customs service facilitator in the Netherlands and Belgium. It offers customs compliance services to a wide range of clients, including consultancy, import, export & transit declarations, certificates of origin, fiscal representation and excise. In recent years, Maco has invested in innovative cloud based software solutions, helping its clients address cross-border complexity and process their declarations in a compliant and efficient way.

Founded in 1953 and privately owned, Maco operates from three locations in the Netherlands and one location in Belgium. The company employs 48 people and generated revenues of EUR 3.9 million in 2016.

'Maco Customs Service is a company with a long history of trade facilitation and strong knowledge of the European customs environment,' said Frankie Ng, CEO of SGS. 'This acquisition will further diversify the services offering of our Governments and Institutions division, and is an ideal complement to our transit services and product conformity assessment activities.'
