Nordian Capital acquires majority stake in IGS GeboJagema

Since the acquisition in 2009 and a merger in 2011, IGS GeboJagema became one of the market leaders in the world of development, production and validation of high-quality, multi-injection moulds for plastic products in the optical and medical industries. IGS takes care of her mainly international customers from design to industrialization and is valued for its unique competences in the field of innovation, automation, quality and validation processes.

Peter Mertens, CEO of IGS GeboJagema: “IGS made major steps over the past years, established a solid international customer base and is widely respected and appreciated for its unique competences in the field of turnkey solutions. By that, we enable our customers, throughout the lifecycle of the product, to significantly save costs and to focus on their core business. The acquisition by Nordian Capital facilitates us to realize our business strategy to grow in the existing and new markets”.

Until now IGS B.V. was a participation of the VADO Beheer B.V., an investor located in Eindhoven. As of January 1, 2016 Nordian Capital will be the new majority shareholder, which crafts an enhanced basis to continue the initiated growth. The current management of IGS remains actively involved in the company and will work with Nordian Capital to shape the future. Under the current name, IGS GeboJagema will continue to strengthen the position in the various markets.

Perry Bos, managing partner Nordian Capital: “We share the vision and enthusiasm of the management team of IGS GeboJagema regarding the future strategy. In recent years a very solid basis for further growth is established in the field of high-quality injection moulds and high-precision parts. Our investment in IGS GeboJagema represents a clear commitment from our side to realize this ambition together”.

Edgar Knip, member of the board of directors of VADO Beheer B.V.: “In recent years IGS has undergone enormous growth and given the achieved scale of the company it was a logical time to start looking for a new owner that can help IGS in realizing its further growth potential”.
