Netherlands’ based WEKA Boxcoolers B.V., manufacturer of copper nickel boxcoolers, was recently purchased by Dunlap & McCullough Holdings LLC, a holding company owned by Paul Fernstrum, Sean Fernstrum, and Todd Fernstrum. Paul Fernstrum, Sean Fernstrum, and Todd Fernstrum also own R.W. Fernstrum & Company. The purchase of the Netherlands’ based company was finalized April 30, 2014.

In 2001, R.W. Fernstrum & Company partnered with WEKA Boxcoolers to manufacture and sell boxcoolers in North and South America, a partnership that has grown synergistically over the years. WEKA Boxcoolers B.V. and R.W. Fernstrum & Company will remain independent companies. Cees de Kwant along with rest of the WEKA team will continue to operate WEKA Boxcoolers in Krimpen a/d Ijessel.

Sean Fernstrum, President of R.W. Fernstrum & Company and the new Managing Director of WEKA Boxcoolers commented, “This purchase will allow us to continue to provide industry leading products and service to our customers while strengthening the longstanding relationship between R.W. Fernstrum & Company and WEKA Boxcoolers. We can now provide our combined customer base a more extensive selection of products with a level of experience unmatched in our markets across the globe.”

Founded in 1957, WEKA Boxcoolers B.V. specializes in manufacturing copper nickel boxcoolers for the marine industry.
