Investor helps Codema achieve further international growth

Codema is looking to achieve further international growth with a new partner: investment company Nordian Capital. The company’s board, with CEO Marcel Koolen, CFO Lennard van der Ham and CCO Gideon de Jager, will remain unchanged.

“In recent years, Codema has achieved significant growth, but now is the right time to accelerate this further,” emphasizes CEO Marcel Koolen. “We want to reinforce our position as a total system integrator and make steps forward both nationally and internationally. Right now, Codema is active abroad and we want to establish ourselves firmly in more places in the world in the coming years. We will take the first steps in this strategy by opening branches in the continents of North America and Asia as well as in German speaking countries."

New partner
"Codema has found the right partner to realize these outline ambitions: from September 1, Nordian Capital will participate in Codema Systems Group. This private equity investment company, together with Gideon de Jager and Marcel Koolen, will take over the shares of Maarten de Jager, who founded Codema 24 years ago, and developed it into the business it is now”, Marcel continues.

“In the first instance, we were seeking a party that could help us to accelerate our growth ambition and that is able to provide proactive support in the area of mergers and takeovers. At the same time, Maarten de Jager was prepared to reduce his share capital in order to provide room for further growth and to allow developments to be realized. This made all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place,” says Marcel Koolen. “Nordian Capital is the ideal party for us as we take this new direction and to realize our ambitions. Because this independent Dutch investor specializes in and has much experience with increasing and accelerating businesses’ global growth.”
