Investment Firm Quadrum Capital Buys Stake In EMM

EMM International says it has attracted investment company Quadrum Capital to accelerate its growth ambitions. According to EMM, continued global expansion and an ongoing focus on product innovation and digitalisation, in co-operation with dealers and end users, form the basis of the company’s growth strategy going forward.

EMM says it has experienced strong international growth in recent years and, with its brands Colad, Hamach, Ronin Tools and Tander, has secured a solid position in the market. Thomas van der Kooij, Director at EMM International, said product innovation combined with a sharp positioning and communication strategy have been key to the company’s rapid growth.

“Our ambition is strong growth and global expansion based on our innovative strength,” van der Kooij said. “Making a difference in the market with new solutions for and with our customers – that’s our main mission. In Quadrum Capital, we have the right partner to successfully achieve these growth ambitions and accelerate our growth as an innovation centre for paint-processing markets worldwide by delivering new, innovative non-paint solutions.”

Peter Oostenenk, Managing Partner at Quadrum Capital, said EMM is a “fantastic company and a market leader” in several international sectors, including automotive repair.

“With growing sales worldwide, the company is known as a quality player,” said Oostenenk. “The energetic way in which new ideas, such as the recently introduced UV Fast Curing System, are developed in collaboration with dealers and end users is a core competence we will build on in our growth strategy. Together, we will raise EMM’s global profile in the coming years.”

EMM says the company’s existing shareholders will continue to stay on, while the current EMM management team will remain at the helm under the leadership of van der Kooij.

Marktlink, a company advising on mergers and acquisitions, supervised the transaction between the two companies.
