The Visser family will pass on the torch to the new generation. As a reinforcement, Viscon Group has attracted investment company Synergia Capital Partners ("Synergia"). Synergia has acquired a significant minority interest in the family business in ‘s-Gravendeel.
The current management-shareholders will step down from day-to-day management and hand over the reins to the new Board. The family has taken this step to allow the company a strong partner that can support Viscon Group in its future growth.
The renewed board, with familiar faces, will further develop the strong position of Viscon Group in amongst others the Agro & Food market. The Agro & Food sector is receiving great interest due to the growing need for sustainable scaling of food production worldwide supporting the well being of future generations. Software, AI and robotics are of increasing importance for this sector. Viscon Group is already active in this area and will move further towards these innovative technologies and business models.
The existing foundation of Viscon Group provides an excellent starting point for further growth and will continue to invest in new ideas. Co-creation with innovative partners, suppliers and game changers in the industry remains one of the company’s core strengths. Synergia - with its experience, knowledge and network - will act as an accelator. “Viscon welcomes Synergia and is grateful that the family will remain involved in the organisation as a shareholder. The family will no longer be involved in the day-to-day management, but will remain an active and supporting shareholder” – says René de Vos, CEO of Viscon Group.
“Viscon is a great example of entrepreneurship and innovation in market segments where The Netherlands can operate distinctively in the global arena. The areas in which Viscon is active are highly positioned on the political, economical and social agendas worldwide. We look forward to work with the company and the family to support Viscon Group in this next phase” – says Daan Legro, managing director at Synergia Capital Partners.
