MBCF is pleased to announce it acted as the exclusive corporate finance advisor to the founding shareholders of Trinamics on the sale of a majority of the shares in Trinamics Beheer B.V. and its subsidiaries (‘Trinamics’ or the ‘Company’) through a management buy-out, sponsored by a Dutch family investment office. Following the transaction Trinamics’ senior management, led by Mr. Philippe Claassen, will join as new shareholders.
Trinamics provides secondment, recruitment and payrolling services of intermediate, higher vocational and academically educated white-collar engineering professionals to the automotive, (high-tech) industry, installation & energy, logistics, aerospace, engineering consultancy, maritime and (petro-)chemical sectors. The Company operates with approximately 170 professionals out of offices in Breda, Eindhoven and Rotterdam. Founded in 2005 by Mr. Ward Gersen and Mr. Roland Frank, Trinamics has consistently shown impressive organic growth rates based on a strong dedication to sales and customer intimacy.
With this new financial support, Trinamics today has the means to engage its ambitious growth projects through the opening of new branches, the reinforcement of its sales teams, and increasing the share of wallet with its long-term clients in the high-tech and engineering domains, who require continuous access to highly sought after qualified, white-collar engineering talents.
Mr. Gersen says: “I am delighted that Trinamics was invested in by a long-term financial partner. This also created a fantastic opportunity for senior management. Roland and I are convinced that this combination will help Trinamics continue to flourish. My thanks go out to the team of MBCF for their advice and support throughout. Their expertise and commitment to the HR Services sector helped to ensure a smooth process and an excellent outcome for all parties”. This represents MBCF’s latest transaction in the HR services space following the recent sale of Eliantie to Pro Data Consult, the acquisition of Humares by Bencis Capital Partners, the sale of FunktieMediair by Randstad and the sale of KP&T by Mentha Capital to Egeria Investments.
MBCF initiated discussions and negotiations with a range of potential strategic and financial buyers in a process that ultimately resulted in a successful transaction with a Dutch family investment office and management, which closed 3 November 2017.
