The acquisition of transport company De Meulemeester & Zn. (Tielt Belgium) took place in 1996. After the acquisition, the trucks received a visible Van den Bosch fleet number on the cabin. Nowadays the company is fully integrated into the Van den Bosch group and the branche in Tielt is closed.

De Meulemeester Tielt (Belgium)
The following photo is from the 70's of the last century and according to the door description, De Meulemeester was moved to Tielt. It shows both a MAN-Büssing - and a MAN - truck. Truck manufacturer Büssing was taken over by MAN in 1971. Until the 1980's, trucks were subsequently made under the name MAN-Büssing.
De Meulemeester & Zn. changed from the blue style to the beige-brown in the 90's of the last century (and later to white as shown on the last two pictures in this gallery). These colors were actually the colors of the the Amylum glucose plant in Aalst Belgium.
The Scania 142H on the 3rd photo was a special one. It's was bought second hand and De Meulemeester had only one 142H of that generation.
