Gorinchem, the Netherlands, 24 September 2019
NPM Capital portfolio company Deli Home, a manufacturer and distributor of constructive and decorative homewares, is announcing that it has reached agreement on the acquisition of Weekamp Deuren (‘Weekamp’). The proposed takeover will be submitted for approval to the Netherlands Authority for Consumers & Markets (ACM) and is expected to be completed in mid-November 2019.
The Deli Home and Weekamp project ranges are perfectly complementary. Whereas Deli Home and its subsidiary Skantrae enjoy a particularly strong position in interior doors, Weekamp has been dominant in exterior doors. Skantrae is primarily a trading company, while Weekamp excels in customised products. This makes the proposed takeover a natural next step, one which is in line with the company’s strategy of international expansion, economies of scale, customised solutions and in-house production.
The new alliance will enable Deli Home to provide even better services to its customers, as well as providing opportunities for growth for both companies within all the industries in which they currently operate. In addition, there are synergy benefits to be gained for both companies in areas such as purchasing, manufacturing, stocks and logistics, while the two companies will also be able to use and increase their expertise more effectively. Together, they will represent a major force in the door market, with more than €100 million in revenue and nearly 1,000 employees. Both companies will continue to operate from their current sites following the acquisition, with no fundamental changes.
Johan Weekamp (CEO Weekamp Deuren): “In Deli Home, we have found the best possible partner to take our company to the next level. My brother and I have spent the past 40 years writing an exciting boys’ adventure novel of sorts, and in taking this next step we will be able to offer our employees, customers and suppliers the continuity they deserve in the future, plus the guarantee that our high-quality products will remain widely available for many years to come.”
Victor Aquina (CEO Deli Home): “Weekamp offers us a unique opportunity to invest, earlier than we would have been able to otherwise, in customised products for our range of doors, which is very important for our company. It is completely in line with our strategy. Furthermore, Weekamp is a family business, just like the other subsidiaries previously acquired by Deli Home. This underscores our commitment to enterprise, passion and technical expertise.”
