Netherlands-based WEKA Boxcoolers, manufacturer of copper nickel boxcoolers, was recently purchased by Dunlap & McCullough Holdings, a holding company owned by Paul Fernstrum, Sean Fernstrum and Todd Fernstrum, who also own R.W. Fernstrum & Company. The purchase of the 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. WEKA Boxcoolers 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.

“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," said Sean Fernstrum, president of R.W. Fernstrum & Company and the new managing director of WEKA Boxcoolers. "We can now provide our combined customer base a more extensive selection of products."
