New chapter with the KOKS Group

In 2023, Doornbos Equipment was sold to another family-owned business, the KOKS Group.

This transition marked the end of an era but also the beginning of an exciting new chapter. The KOKS Group, known for its innovation and expertise in the industrial cleaning sector, saw great potential in Doornbos Equipment’s legacy and capabilities.

The acquisition by KOKS Group was a strategic move aimed at combining strengths and expanding market reach. For Doornbos, this means access to more resources, advanced technologies, and a broader network.

The synergy between the two companies is expected to drive significant growth and innovation, benefiting both the business and its customers.

Continuity and change

Despite the change in ownership, the essence of Doornbos Equipment remains. The core values of quality, reliability, and customer service continue to be the driving forces behind the company’s operations.

The integration with the KOKS Group has brought new energy and vision, with the commitment to retain the principles that made Doornbos Equipment a trusted name in the industry endures.

The collaboration has already begun to yield positive results, with the introduction of cutting-edge industrial cleaning solutions and enhanced service capabilities.

The combined expertise of Doornbos and KOKS ensures that customers receive the best of both worlds: a rich legacy of quality and the latest innovations in industrial equipment.

Celebrating a new milestone: the Billingham Depot open day

This renewed strength was celebrated as Doornbos Equipment marked the opening of its new depot in Billingham with an open day together all the sister companies under the KOKS Group umbrella.

The event was a significant milestone, showcasing both the rich heritage and the innovative future of Doornbos Equipment.

It was also an opportunity to display a wide range of equipment, from the most established and trusted machines to the latest and most innovative technologies.

Visitors had the chance to see firsthand how Doornbos and the KOKS Group are pushing the boundaries of industrial equipment solutions.

The event highlighted the seamless integration of the various KOKS Group companies, all now operating under one roof at the new Billingham depot.

This consolidation not only enhances operational efficiency but also underscores the collaborative spirit and shared vision of the KOKS Group family.

With the Open Day came the exciting opportunity to showcase some of the newest advancements in industrial cleaning technology, as well as new Doornbos built machines.
