Thieu van Dorst Commercial Vehicles has a long history; the company was launched by the name-giver in the 70’s at Terheijden. In 2008 the company, at that time consisting of three establishments, was taken over by Joop Meijer. He has expanded the organization to its current size: an organization with facilities in Breda, Den Bosch, Goes, Roosendaal and Tilburg. The company became MAN Dealer of the Year at least four times in the past ten years.
At an age of 45, Fred van der Heijden, is well known in the truck sector. As of September 1, 2018 he joined Thieu van Dorst Bedrijfswagens as Commercial Director of the Tilburg and Den Bosch locations. Prior to this, Mr. van der Heijden worked at MAN Dealer Netherlands in various commercial and management positions.
In 2008, the Crossminds team assisted Mr. Meijer with the purchase of Thieu van Dorst.
In 2018, Crossminds assisted Mr. Meijer with the purchase of the facilities in Den Bosch and Tilburg.
And now we are proud to say that we have been able to assist Joop Meijer with his exit. This completes the circle.
The transaction has been supervised by Lars van Heeren, Pieter Poortvliet and Manfred Zurhorst and was finalized on January 3, 2020.
