Anders Invest acquires VIOS Houttechniek

Anders Invest

On May 15th, Anders Invest acquired VIOS Houttechniek with branches in Driebruggen, Hoorn and Doetinchem. VIOS, founded in 1914 and now number 1 in the Netherlands in the production and sale of wooden staircases, has a turnover of € 25-30 million and employs more than 150 people. For Anders Invest, it is the 15th company in its industry portfolio.

VIOS is the market leader in the Netherlands in the field of engineering, production and assembly of serial custom-made staircases for residential construction. The company has most large, medium and small Dutch construction companies as customers. VIOS is increasingly involved in the construction process so that the right staircase is installed at the right time and the completion of the home can proceed in a timely manner. On the sales side, VIOS is also integrated with contractors and developers with online tools with which home owners can configure their stairs. In addition to serial-produced staircases, VIOS makes exclusive, tailor-made staircases including carpentry, stair gates and stair railings.

Stairrailing factory Fremeyer in Hoorn is also part of the transaction. VIOS has a third location in Doetinchem with a showroom where various luxury staircases can be seen. VIOS increasingly inspires its customers and end users in the application of higher quality staircases, finishes and various options. VIOS has a modern and automated machine park at its factory in Driebruggen, which means that a staircase is processed very efficiently from drawing to end product.

The shares were taken over from directors Hans Diekema and Jaap Mullié, both of whom had owned VIOS since 2003. Anders Invest is doing the acquisition together with incoming director Dirk Bergman, who is acquiring a minority interest. Dirk has extensive experience in management positions at wood and building materials companies. In his most recent role, Dirk was active as CEO of Deli Home.

In the past 10 years, VIOS has acquired a leading position in the market through organic growth and through various takeovers of smaller staircase factories. Due to the increasing demands on building processes, solid prospects for the number of new homes to be delivered and the consumer who expects more customization, the company sees sufficient opportunities for further growth. VIOS is characterized by a pleasant organizational culture with loyal employees with attention to quality and craftsmanship. Anders Invest and Dirk Bergman look forward to adding a successful new period to the company’s history with them.

The Carlyle Group and Schneider Electric extend partnership to develop Critical Infrastructure projects

Carlyle

  • The partnership is designed to develop new and innovative infrastructure projects meeting the growing need for sustainable investment in critical assets and services
  • The companies will focus on delivering digitally-enabled and efficient critical assets by combining Carlyle Infrastructure’s investing and asset-operator expertise with smart energy management and automation solutions from Schneider Electric
  • The partnership builds on and expands the existing strategic alliance to widely deploy microgrids through customer adoption of energy-as-a-service offering

WASHINGTON, DC AND RUEIL-MALMAISON (FRANCE) – Global investment firm, The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) and Schneider Electric SE (EPA: SU), the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the enhancement of their partnership to develop new and innovative infrastructure projects.

In addition to creating new investment and energy-as-a-service opportunities, this collaboration will apply Schneider Electric’s capabilities in advanced connectivity and real-time insights to current and future Carlyle infrastructure and microgrid investments.

In a market which faced sustained underinvestment in critical infrastructure due to funding constraints, the new partnership will offer innovative and efficient solutions meeting the needs of a rapidly changing energy landscape.

The Carlyle Group recently announced several large infrastructure projects, including the JFK Airport Terminal One Redevelopment, Munich Airport Joint Venture (Reach Airports) and Lone Star Ports Harbor Island Crude Export Terminal, which are expected to benefit from this partnership and Schneider’s breadth of technology-enabled products, solutions and services.

The JFK Airport Terminal One Redevelopment, the most recently announced project, is expected to leverage Schneider Electric’s solutions to improve the sustainability of the terminal and enhance the reliability of the airport’s energy supply through a state-of-the-art microgrid. The redevelopment is expected to reduce energy use by as much as 30% and contribute to a goal of reaching 100% renewable energy usage within the next decade.

The new partnership also entails the formation of a joint venture, named AlphaStruxure to drive from the design and engineering phase the development of smarter infrastructure projects and more reliable distributed energy and microgrid networks.  Juan Macias, formerly SVP of Energy Automation and Digital Energy Solutions at Schneider Electric, will lead AlphaStruxure as the Chief Executive Officer, drawing on his broad experience in global energy technology and new market endeavors over a nearly 30-year career in the energy and industrial sectors.

The $18 trillion U.S. economy relies on a vast network of infrastructure that was built decades ago and plays a major role in the growth of the economy[1]; delayed investment and rising maintenance costs are however limiting the economic growth potential of these critical infrastructure. Innovative private sector partnerships, such as this one, can bring new solutions to upgrade critical infrastructure within airports, seaports, water treatment and delivery, institutions, communities and the private sector to optimize energy consumption, deliver cost savings and improve productivity and reliability

“People everywhere rely daily on infrastructure that does not meet the demands of a 21st century economy,” said Andrew Marino, Managing Director and Co-Head of Carlyle’s global infrastructure team. “AlphaStruxure delivers a powerful combination of cutting-edge automation and energy management technology and expertise, and financing solutions to turn this important global issue on its head. Together, we will identify new investment opportunities, modernize core infrastructure to keep people and goods moving, and open new value and revenue streams for both public and private entities. We look forward to a prominent role in shaping the future of infrastructure around the world.”

“Strong and resilient critical infrastructure is fundamental to powering and maintaining our digital economy. We are just scratching the surface of the investment needed to create more modern airports, water systems, transportation systems and others that will support future demand and connect society,” said Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman and CEO, Schneider Electric. “While infrastructure is a global issue, it can only be addressed at a local level. We believe our partnership leverages the best of our organizations’ abilities: Carlyle’s ability to get deals done with local stakeholders support and our global technology expertise and footprint to optimize projects that will provide immediate, tangible impact for economies globally.”

AlphaStruxure builds on Schneider Electric and The Carlyle Group’s strategic alliance to deliver an energy-as-a-service model that empowers customers to stabilize long-term energy costs and upgrade critical energy infrastructure. By providing energy-as-a-service, customers have a platform to own and operate microgrids without capital outlay, as well as a simpler solution to meet operational efficiency and clean energy goals.
