The accession of Waterland Private Equity gives SEC a highly capitalised partner that, thanks to its broad international network and experience, will enable the company to realise its European growth strategy at an accelerated pace.
For Waterland, the participation in SEC fits its strategy of investing in successful enterprises that aim to acquire a leading position in their sector. “We as a family are convinced that, with Waterland, we have found an ambitious partner to support continuation and acceleration of our current success,” says Jan Scholt (CEO).
The Scholt family maintains a substantial stake in the company. Furthermore, the management team as a whole will remain active at the company. Jan Scholt continues: “This means that our unique strategy and corporate culture will be preserved. And so our clients can be assured that they will continue to receive the accustomed quality and service from SEC.”
