Dinnissen Process Technology and Ottevanger Milling Engineers have announced a strategic alliance to realize customer value, synergy and focus together.
The alliance takes shape through a participation in Dinnissen by Bolster Investment Partners and Triott Group, the holding company which Ottevanger forms a part of. The collaboration allows Dinnissen to focus more on high-end processing solutions for food, dairy, chemicals, pet food and pharma. For Ottevanger, the alliance offers the opportunity to strengthen its position in the international feed market.
This step fits in with the ambition of the companies to realize value creation, continuity and growth in a sustainable way. Both production technology companies have a strong international customer base, which largely complement each other. With the alliance, the companies will continue to shape collaboration in areas such as customer projects, international services, R&D, innovation and efficiency.
For Dinnissen, the alliance means the company can serve its customer group even better. Also, the collaboration with the Triott Group companies offers the opportunity to further expand the range of automation solutions, 24/7 support and dosing and storage systems.
For Ottevanger, the alliance offers the opportunity to strengthen its position in the international feed market. Dinnissen’s high-end machines strengthen the current range in the field of food grade and hygiene.
Bolster Investment Partners has a lot of experience in (internationally) expanding Dutch manufacturing companies and is joining this partnership as a long-term investor. Bolster will support the alliance in realising its growth ambitions with a strong network and with knowledge in the field of organisation, strategy and professionalization.
Frans Bakker, CCO Dinnissen Process Technology, said, ‘We are facing the next growth step for our company. This alliance with Ottevanger and Bolster enables us to achieve this and to continue our healthy future. We want to follow our customers even more internationally and strengthen our service and 24/7 support. Ottevanger has been a solid player in the international processing industry for years. We complement each other very nicely.’
Ernst-Jan Ottevanger, CEO Ottevanger Milling Engineers and Triott Group, said, ‘Dinnissen is a wonderful company, built on values that have many similarities with our values: customer-friendly, progressive and with an eye for the human dimension. This alliance fits in with our growth strategy. We are confident we can offer our customers even more with this.’
“Dinnissen and the Triott Group companies are exceptional Dutch companies with strong international market positions and leading customers in feed and food. The companies are complementary to each other. We see many opportunities for further growth from the perspective of synergy. This investment therefore fits in perfectly with our long-term strategy,” said Joost Bakhuizen, partner Bolster Investment Partners.
