NPM Capital Partners with Dieseko
Private equity firm NPM Capital is taking a majority interest in Dieseko Group BV, manufacturer of hydraulic vibratory foundation equipment.
These machines and power packs are supplied for rental and sales to foundation companies across the globe. Not only on land and on the water but also in the offshore industry. BAM, Ballast Nedam, Heijmans, Petrobras, Liebherr and Hochtief are just some of the company’s clients. With NPM Capital, Dieseko would like to expand and perfect its range of products and services and strengthen the international (service) network via well-targeted acquisitions, among other things.
NPM will support Dieseko with the expansion of its activities by providing both financing and know-how. The company currently employs 120 staff at the head office in Sliedrecht and many other people at the branches in Singapore, Brazil and China. Local, independent dealer companies take care of sales and support activities abroad. One of the group’s strategic aims is to strengthen the international position and growth, particularly in China and Brazil.
The customers, often construction and foundation companies, use these machines for the installation of canal bank protection systems, port quays and viaducts on major roads but also for installing foundation piles for offshore oil platforms and windfarms. The many innovations and the strong discipline in relation to rental, service and, above all, know-how, have enabled the company to create a cast-iron position for itself in the market.
The involvement of NPM as a majority shareholder means that the investment company Greenfield Capital Partners has been completely bought out. The interest of the current directors will largely be retained. The executive team comprises Ton Kraak and Jan van Es, who will continue to fulfil the directorial function.
