Anders Invest buys Multideur

On 30 August 2019, Anders Invest acquired Multi-Deur Service BV from Zeewolde. Multideur supplies new service doors and also provides service and maintenance for all types of service doors. The company has a turnover of € 5-10 million and employs more than 30 employees.

 

Multideur is active in comparable business segments such as Stackdoor, located in Harderwijk, which has been part of the Anders Invest portfolio for some time. After the transaction, the integration process of both companies will be started at the Multideur location in Zeewolde.

Multideur has traditionally been active in the field of commercial doors and, since its foundation in 1987, has mainly focused on the production of doors, door fittings and the delivery of new commercial doors. In recent years, great efforts have been made to grow the service branch of the company. The company has doubled its sales in the last three years and continues to show solid growth.

 

Multi-door provides service and maintenance for all types of company doors and has a team of experienced service technicians with extensive expertise. Multi-door is increasingly succeeding in concluding service contracts with large clients in the Netherlands. The new doors business segment is nowadays characterized by the wide range of possibilities in different types of doors. For the standard overhead doors, Multideur has entered into a partnership with Condoor and Multideur is now an important Condoor dealer. The industrial and garage doors that are manufactured and supplied by Multideur itself are mainly doors where a special customer requirement plays a role.

 

The shares in Multideur are taken over from the current owner, the investment company Waterland Investments BV, which has owned the company since 2016. Maarten Zijlstra, the current director of Multideur, and Johannes de Jager, the operational director of Stackdoor, will form the two-person management of the combination.

 

Stackdoor and Multideur are active in comparable business and many business processes are similar. Stackdoor produces the unique, patented, safety gate “Stackdoor”, which can be used in any situation due to its minimal installation space and maximum passage height. The Stackdoor stacking gate has been used, among other things, in the market hall in Rotterdam and in the Hoog Catharijne shopping center in Utrecht. Stackdoor is now represented worldwide through a dealer network.

 

Substantial synergy effects are expected to be achieved by combining Stackdoor and Multideur. Stackdoor can make use of the existing Multideur production location and overhead is shared. Multideur's strategy has been continued and the integration with Stackdoor will not cause any change for Multideur's customers. Stackdoor and Multideur are integrated at the current location of Multideur in Zeewolde. More information about Multi-door can be found on the Multi-door website.
