As of July 5, 2024, Spectro B.V. has acquired the customer portfolio, recipes, inventories, brand names, and order portfolio of Militex Development and Manufacturing B.V. and Militex Sales B.V.

Rich History

The families behind the companies: Metternich (Spectro) and Van den Eijnde (Militex) share a rich history together. With this acquisition, Spectro adds 75 years of product experience to its organization. We welcome Militex's loyal customer base into the sustainable and fresh business operations of Spectro. Militex's advanced microbiological products are a valuable addition to our product range.

Swift Production in Oss

For a seamless transition, the first productions will take place in Oss starting from week 28. The production site in IJmuiden will be closed later this year. Dennis Koekenbier (Operations Director) and Marijke Hogerheijde (Internal Sales) will be working for Spectro, ensuring familiar contacts for customers and suppliers and a smooth, efficient transition.

We thank customers, suppliers, employees, and all other stakeholders for their trust and look forward to a long-term cooperation.
