Crown Fine Art (CFA) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Kunsttransport in Belgium.
Kunsttransport has many years of experience in the transportation of fine art, providing the following services to museums, art centers, galleries, artists and art collectors:
- International fine art, design and antiques shipping
- Art handling
- Asset management
Belgium is an interesting market for the world of fine art because of its range of museums and galleries. This acquisition supports our desire to increase our market share and storage revenue across the globe.
Fred Weijgertse, Managing Director of CFA – EMEA, comments: “The acquisition of Kunsttransport has increased our scope in the Belgium fine art market.”
The acquisition also means that we’ve gained four new experts in art handling/logistics. Plus two new trucks fully-equipped for fine art logistics.
Fred adds: “The former owners of Kunsttransport have joined CFA, and as highly-motivated individuals, they are looking forward to developing their skill-set within the Crown family”.
CFA Belgium will continue to operate out of its current location in Brussels. Kunsttransport’s operational activities have already moved to this location, and will be renamed and rebranded as CFA.
2015 is set to be an exciting year for the growth of the Fine Art business. We look forward to sharing further exciting news throughout the year!
