Control engineering components for gas networks

Impression

Anders Invest has a 60% interest in gAvilar BV in Dordrecht. The other shares are held by the management. gAvilar is the market leader in control components for gas networks in the Netherlands. The company develops, produces and sells gas pressure regulators, gas stations and gas meter brackets. A large majority of Dutch meter cupboards have a gas pressure regulator from Dordrecht. The company currently has a turnover of over € 15 million, employs more than 60 people, is growing and has been profitable for many years.

gAvilar stems from the Meterfabriek Dordrecht, founded in 1858, a well-known name in Dutch industrial history. In 1983, it was the first company outside the automotive industry to have a fully robotised production line. After wandering within larger global companies (including Schlumberger, Actaris, Itron), 2012 came into the hands of current management and some private investors. Anders Invest and the two directors, Pieter Klijs and Arie Visser, are continuing to work on gAvilar. Former director Ad Huijps is chairman of the Advisory Board. Rabobank has provided the acquisition financing.

GAvilar has a strong position in the Dutch gas network. Thanks to extensive robotisation and good engineering, a constant and high quality is provided, which is crucial to guarantee the safety of the gas network. gAvilar has been one of the few parties to meet the quality and safety requirements for household gas pressure regulators and gas pressure regulating and measuring stations for years. Through an acquisition in March 2017, gAvilar further strengthened its product portfolio. It also has a growing position abroad, which helps Anders Invest to strengthen.
