Expansion of interest in Brabant Group

On July 7, 2020, in accordance with the agreements in the 2017 shareholders' agreement, Anders Invest acquired the shares (30%) held by Dick Ravensbergen and Erik Drijver in the Brabant Group. The industryfund now fully owns the company. At the beginning of June, Dick and Erik stepped down as management and Arie Vergunst became general manager.


In consultation with Dick and Erik and the management team, an experienced successor has been found in Arie Vergunst who will work with the existing management team to continue the developments that the company has initiated in recent years. Arie, former CFO of Royal IHC, has broad experience in general and financial management positions.


Dick and Erik will remain connected to the company as an advisor to ensure a smooth transfer, whereby their knowledge and skills will be of use to the company for a longer period of time.


The Brabant Group has a good reputation and a leading position in the blasting and preservation industry in the Netherlands. In the past challenging months, turnover has also remained at a reasonable level and Brabant Groep is working on fantastic projects. The steel treated by the Brabant Group is used in many different end markets, including shipbuilding, civil engineering and (petro) chemicals.


On behalf of Anders Invest, we thank Dick and Erik for their many years of commitment to the Brabant Group and we look forward to continuing to build this beautiful company together with the new management and all employees.
