PORTFOLIO

Kiekens Groep

Anders Invest has a 60% stake in the 110 year old Kiekens Groep B.V. at Almelo. The company produces industry ventilators and dedusting machines for high and low vacuum applications. The company has two locations (Almelo and Linschoten), about 55 employees and a profitable turnover of 10 million euro.

Kiekens Group is a prominent player in the Dutch manufacturing industry with respect to industry ventilators and dedusting machines for high and low vacuum applications and has a strong reputation of quality and customization. The company is both nationally and internationally strongly represented in many industry segments, such as seed breeding, chemistry, recycling, plastic processing, food, industry burners and machine building.   The following film gives a short impression of the company.

Kiekens was founded in 1907 as a manufacturer of ventilators and forges, since 1947 the company is located in Almelo. Since the seventies to 1998 Kiekens was a part of Imtech. After that Kiekens  was possessed by its main distributors. In 2007 VLM (Linschoten) was integrated at the Kiekens Group. In 2015 investment company Festos acquired the shares from the distributors and started together with two new managers to grow the company including international expansion. The last 1.5 year both the turnover and profitability grew heavily. Anders Invest entered as a shareholder with a long term vision, focusing on stability and the continuation of growth ambitions. The transaction, the fifth in the two-year history of Anders Invest, was financed by Rabobank. By the transaction Rabobank Participaties and a minority shareholder were replaced. The very experienced management, bought 10% of the total shares. The investment company Festos remains involved as a minority shareholder.
