Shaft seals for ship propellers

Impression

Anders Invest, together with investment company De Hoge Dennen Capital and a number of co-investors, own the 160-year-old Lagersmit Sealing Solutions in Alblasserdam. Lagersmit produces and sells shaft seals for ship propellers, pumps and tidal turbines. With approximately 60 employees and a healthy turnover, Lagersmit is a global player in its segment.

Lagersmit produces and sells shaft seals for ship propellers, pumps and tidal turbines. This is a critical part of keeping fluids separated. In the case of a ship propulsion, the seawater remains outside and the lubricating oil remains inside the ship. Due to the high quality of the seals, they are also used in dredging pumps, (cooling) water pumps, tidal power stations, pumping stations and other industrial applications. Lagersmit has its origins in 1856 and has long been part of Royal IHC. The company has a high-quality and broad product range and realizes healthy turnover and profit. The world market has long been dominated by 4 players, of which Lagersmit is the last independent and most focused player. It has an extensive international network of sales and service points and derives a large part of its turnover from recurring turnover from existing customers and from service, making it relatively unaffected by the difficult maritime market. The company has highly automated production and has all the necessary engineering knowledge in-house. Anders Invest, De Hoge Dennen Capital, and co-investors of Anders Invest look forward to adding new growth to Lagersmit together with the management team and the approximately 60 employees.

The shareholders have entered a long-term vision with a focus on stability and the continuation of growth ambitions, including in China and the industrial market. The transaction was conducted under the direction of Anders Invest. The transaction, the sixth in Anders Invest's two-year history, was financed by Rabobank.
