Brink’s Diamonds Services Not Affected by Bankruptcy
Brink’s diamond and international activities were not affected by bankruptcy filing of Brink’s Belgium, which has filed for bankruptcy in the Brussels court of commerce.
Brink’s Belgium is however a totally separate entity from Brink’s Global Services (BGS), the business unit specialized in international transport of diamonds and foreign currencies and owned by Brink’s Diamonds and Jewelry Services (BDJS). BGS is thus absolutely not affected by the fact that Brink’s Belgium has filed for bankruptcy.
Brink’s stresses that BGS is a business run by professional people, being successful over many years in the international services for diamonds and secured logistics for valuables. BGS is not involved in the conflict reigning the national transport activities at Brink’s Belgium. The business of BGS is operating normally.
