Aeternus assists Van Den Broek in its sale to industry peer WILVO GROUP
Wilvo Group takes over processor of precision mechanical parts, Van den Broek Precision & Tooling. With this, Wilvo continues to focus on extreme precision in the field of machining.
Wilvo and Van Den Broek have been working together for years and found each other in the characteristic ‘Kempic company DNA’ and healthy (growth) ambition. The acquisition will enable Van Den Broek to actually realize the desired and necessary growth ‘under the Wilvo Group’ flag. In addition, the continuity of the company is guaranteed. An absolute must for the current management, which consists of Johan Van Den Broek and Mieke Van Vonderen – Van Den Broek .
Rob Lemmens , CEO of Wilvo : “ We have been a ‘customer’ of Van Den Broek for many years. They operate in a niche market and are really the top segment in it. In addition, Van Den Broek occupies a strong position in the medical technology market. The combination of all this is the primary reason for us to take over Van Den Broek. We are not only concerned with opportunities in the market, but also with the next level precision that we are now joining. †
Partly due to the arrival of investor Borromin Capital, concrete steps are being taken in Wilvo’s buy & build strategy. The takeover of Van den Broek is the third in a row. Previously, mechanical supplier GFM , and Iteq were acquired.
Maurice Koopmans and Dex van Gils of Aeternus: “We can look back on a very pleasant and constructive transfer process, in which all those involved have made every effort to make this great next step possible for the company and its employees.”
The management of Van Den Broek was guided in this process by Maurice Koopmans , Dex van Gils and Lieke Janssen of Aeternus. We wish Van den Broek and Wilvo Group every success in further expanding this leading partnership.
