On October the 18th 2019 an important transfer took place. VIOD Verenfabriek B.V. has become part of the Alcomex Group. Ben van Nieuwkerk en Barrie Goenee will remain the Managing Directors of VIOD. We are very pleased that VIOD is joining the Alcomex Group.
It has been our preference to take over a company which is complementary to Alcomex, creating a strong combination with added value and security for employees, customers and suppliers. The combination of Alcomex and VIOD is strong because both companies complement each other very well with regard to both technical and production knowledge as well as the product market combinations in which both companies are active.
A transfer at VIOD was to be expected because both Mr. Van Nieuwkerk and Mr. Goenee have no natural successor in their families and, after respectively 37 and 20 years of building VIOD into what it is today, they wished to transfer their responsibilities timely in order to secure further expansion and internationalization.
We have known Ben van Nieuwkerk and Barrie Goenee for some time now and we are impressed how they, together with all employees, have successfully transformed VIOD into a solid technical company in recent years with an excellent reputation in the market.
VIOD will continue as an independent company within the Alcomex Group, and we are convinced it has a bright future with its present organization, location and name.
We are pleased that Ben van Nieuwkerk and Barrie Goenee will remain actively involved with VIOD in the coming years, so as to ensure a smooth and thorough transition and to further grow VIOD.
We would like to stress that the success of VIOD has been built thanks to the effort and help of its employees, customers, suppliers and other business relations.
With confidence we look forward to a continuous successful collaboration with all stakeholders of VIOD and Alcomex. You can find more information on VIOD on www.viodveren.nl.
