    Aalberts Industries N.V. : Aalberts Industries strengthens Industrial
         Services' market position in the field of surface treatment

Aalberts Industries N.V. has reached an agreement to acquire 100% of the
shares of GF-Flamm-Metallspritz-GmbH ("Flamm"), active with one production
facility in Moers, Germany, with an annual revenue of EUR 6 million and
approximately 30 employees.

Flamm is specialised in surface treatment by means of a thermal spraying
technology. Also products are treated with specialised machinery before and/or
after the surface treatment in order to meet the high specification demands of
customers. This technology is globally applied in many markets, such as
energy, turbine, oil & gas, machine building and industry.

Flamm's existing management will continue to lead the company and will work
closely together with the management of Group Material Technology. The
additional thermal spraying technology, combined with the strong network of
Industrial Services' surface treatment activities - already active at 22
locations in Europe - will further strengthen the leading market position of
this activity.

The acquisition will be consolidated as of 1 January 2013 and will directly
contribute to the earnings per share and will be financed from existing credit
facilities.
