Techmar takes the next step in ambition to grow with Dei Capital's participation

Techmar, manufacturer and supplier of 12-volt outdoor lighting, is taking the next step in its growth with a majority-participation from Dei Capital. Founder Roy Middelbos will step down as director and owner after the accession of Dei Capital. The day-to-day management of Techmar will remain in the hands of co-owner Gert Nijland.

Nico Niehoff about Techmar: In its almost 20-year history, Techmar has developed and successfully introduced a beautiful range of 12-volt outdoor lighting products into the market. The company has experienced tremendous growth, and we look forward to continue growing together with the Techmar team.

Gert Nijland on Dei Capital: I am proud of what Roy and I have achieved with Techmar. Getting an experienced and knowledgeable investor on board was essential for the next step. I am sure that Dei Capital is the right investor. It will allow us to professionalise our organisation further, innovate even more, and increase our market share. I would like to thank Roy for the incredible, successful years and wish him lots of success with his next endeavours.

Roy Middelbos: After almost 20 years at Techmar, it's time for the next step, and I've made a well-considered decision to resign from our beautiful company. I would like to thank Gert for the intense and successful cooperation; I look back on what we have achieved together with great pride. I wish Gert, Nico and Bas a lot of success with the further expansion of Techmar. I am full of ideas and energy, and I look forward to a bright future.
