Match Plan is proud to announce that it has successfully assisted the Ondernemend Kapitaal investment group with the acquisition of furniture manufacturer De Esdoorn.
De Esdoorn is active in the field of the design and production (in its own factory) of high-quality furniture for childcare. These include daycare centers, out-of-school care, playgroups, host parents and schools. De Esdoorn’s products are distinguished by a progressive design in combination with practical use. De Esdoorn employs 20 employees.
Ondernemend Kapitaal consists of a pragmatic and entrepreneurial group of investors in SMEs who are keen to participate jointly in profitable SMEs and family businesses. With approximately ten participants, the group is able to add entrepreneurship to these companies in addition to capital, specific knowledge and experience.
With the contribution of Ondernemend Kapitaal, the ambitious growth plans of the Esdoorn can be further strengthened. For example, the aim is to achieve a 33% increase in turnover in 2019 with a significant improvement in the EBITDA margin. Ondernemend Kapitaal, together with the existing management, will realize further growth through the expansion to other sectors, including education and healthcare.
