NL: Acquisition by parent company Van Iperen

Westmaas-based Thesis BV wants to acquire the 'Agro Science' companies AgroBuren BV, R. van Wesemael BV and WPA-Robertus Zeker & Vast BV from the Wesemael Group with retroactive effect from 1 January 2024. Following approval by the ACM (Authority Consumer & Market), these companies will continue to operate as independent entities with their own names under Thesis. The 'Plant Support', 'Automotive' and 'Investments' companies of the Wesemael Group are not part of the transaction. Currently, Thesis includes the companies Van Iperen BV, Van Iperen International BV, Transterminal Dordrecht BV and Euroliquids BV.

Both Thesis and Wesemael 'Agro Science' play a role in advising and supplying products to nourish, strengthen and protect their customers' crops in the agricultural sector. According to Thesis, the Wesemael 'Agro Science' companies and the Thesis organization complement each other well in terms of geographical coverage. Wesemael 'Agro Science' has branches in Apeldoorn, Biddinghuizen, Dedemsvaart, Hulst, Opheusden, Schagerbrug, Tiel, Warffum, Westerbork and Winschoten. The Wesemael 'Agro Science' companies currently employ about 100 people.

"We believe in a future-proof company, operating in a strong agricultural sector. This move expands our team with a group of experienced employees, and with the new branches we will further optimize our geographical coverage. This allows us to continue at a larger scale what we do best: guiding growers to grow crops in a future-proof way," says Dirk-Jan Bakker, managing director at Thesis.

"Thesis shares our norms and values, we fit together. For this reason, I also look forward to continuing our cooperation," says Boudewijn van Wesemael, managing director Wesemael Group.

According to both parties, the takeover offers opportunities for further cooperation and employee development. Investments in research, knowledge, and technology in precision agriculture and fertigation, for example, become accessible to the customers of all companies involved in the transaction. The same goes for investments in digitalization and sustainability. In addition, the companies can further optimize their logistics and transport.
