Rhenus Office Systems, the company that specialises in document management, signed a joint venture with the Belgian logistics expert, the Dockx Group, on 1 April 2017. The partners jointly established the company known as Dockx Rhenus Archisafe N.V.
Rhenus Office Systems and the Dockx Group each hold 50 percent of the shares in the joint company known as Dockx Rhenus Archisafe N.V. It will provide professional, physical document archiving from now on at the business site in Wilrijk (Antwerp). The high-security archive can be extended in a flexible manner and meets the highest international standards.
“We’re delighted to have found a partner, which, like Rhenus, is interested in developing document management services in the long term as a family business. The needs of customers and solution-oriented services have always been the major focus of both companies and this is particularly important for the future in the information and document logistics fields,” says Gerrit Merten, International Manager of Rhenus Office Systems and a future Managing Director of Dockx Rhenus Archisafe.
“The areas of expertise at Rhenus and Dockx complement each other perfectly. Rhenus as an internationally operating specialist in the field of information and document logistics combined with the strong brand of the Dockx logistics company, which operates all over Belgium, form the basis for the further expansion of physical file archiving and other document services,” says Wilfried Dockx, Managing Director of Dockx Rhenus Archisafe.
File archiving is just the starting point for developing document management solutions for Rhenus in Belgium. Other services from the Rhenus Office Systems portfolio will probably be made available in Belgium in future.
