Technolab and Legiotec, leading companies in the field of testing and inspecting air and water quality, have joined the Sansidor Group
The shareholders of Technolab, an advisory and research firm specialising in drinking water systems, air quality, and indoor climate, and Legiotec, a specialist in legionella control and backflow prevention, have sold their shares to Sansidor Group (“Sansidor”). The acquisition of Technolab and Legiotec is in line with Sansidor’s buy-and-build strategy to strengthen its position in the field of building-related recurring inspections, advice, and services in the Netherlands.
Michel van Veen: “I have always operated from the expertise of our fields, and how beautiful it is to see Technolab and Legiotec being integrated into an organization with strong expertise. We have encountered each other in the market, in working groups, and in industry associations, but now we are colleagues!”
Michel Capitein: “Of course, after a long period of entrepreneurship, it is exciting to hand over your metaphorical ‘baby.’ But, I do so with great confidence in Sansidor. They are a stable and rapidly growing organization that adheres to the same values as the way I have conducted business over the past decades.”
Lindenaar & Co acted as advisor to the shareholders of Technolab and Legiotec and coordinated the entire transaction process, including the preparation of the information memorandum and financial model, identifying potential buyers, evaluating offers, conducting negotiations and coordinating the due diligence process.
