Kingspan invests in daylight, ventilation and fire safety specialist Brakel

« Back

In 2015, investment company Gimv acquired the majority interest in Dutch firm Brakel, an important European player in glass daylight structures and ventilation and fire safety solutions. The period was marked by a pleasant and fruitful partnership. On Friday 24 November 2017, Gimv and the management of Brakel transferred its shares to Kingspan.

For over 40 years, Brakel (www.brakel.com) has been the market leader in the Benelux and United Kingdom in high-end solutions for glass daylight structures (glass roofs and skylights), ventilation (top hung windows, louvered ventilators) and fire safety systems (fire detection, installations for smoke and heat extraction) in commercial and industrial buildings. These solutions meet the increasing demand for a comfortable, sustainable and safe indoor climate, using natural light and fresh air. Furthermore, they are manufactured from high-quality recyclable materials, such as glass and aluminium. Brakel is responsible for the production, installation – whether or not through partners or fitters – and maintenance of these systems.

The addition of the Brakel companies to Kingspan Light + Air gives a boost to the partner strategy pursued by Brakel, which will undergo further expansion under the wings of Kingspan. Light + Air is a division within the Kingspan Group consisting of national and international companies that are engaged in sustainable solutions in daylight admission, LED, smoke and heat extraction and ventilation. Innovation and customer relations play a central role.

Brakel fits seamlessly within the Kingspan Light + Air vision. Brakel has for many years been achieving a sustainable, safe and comfortable indoor climate using the natural elements of daylight and fresh air.

"In partnership with Gimv, Brakel has increased its market position and established a stable platform with sustainable products. Our ambitions to achieve market penetration in the European end market and a worldwide distribution network are strengthened and supported by Kingspan. We have found an excellent stakeholder in Kingspan, with whom we can accelerate our ambitions. As part of Kingspan Light + Air we now have a solid base for further growth and product and market development. Positive for both the company and its employees," says Ton van Gerwen, CEO of Brakel.
