Kadri Kalvik (info a nordkalk.com), 1 July 2016

Rettig Group has completed the sale of Bore Ltd. to the Dutch shipping company Spliethoff’s Bevrachtingskantoor B.V.. All activities of the Bore business have transfered to Spliethoff, including all of Bore’s employees, Bore’s entire fleet of nine RoRo vessels and the Bore brand.


”This is an interesting next step for Bore, which has now become part of a shipping company with global scope and long traditions in shipping. We wish Bore and the whole crew all the best as it enters a new phase of its shipping operations. As a result of the divestment the financial flexibility of Rettig Group has improved. We will continue to develop our existing businesses within the Group or diversify into entirely new businesses that support our risk diversification strategy and where Rettig Group can add value as a long-term owner”, said Tomas von Rettig, President and CEO of Rettig Group.
