The Verder Group has reinforced its top position after being named the number one brand in the Maakindustrie100 (Manufacturing Industry100) in 2019, and for the second consecutive year. The Maakindustrie100 is an annual list of the best performing manufacturing companies in the Netherlands, compiled by CFI and Management Team.
Led by CEO Andries Verder, the family group produces high-tech laboratory equipment and a very wide range of pumps and mixers for industrial applications The completely independent family business serves customers from all over the world. In 2018, revenue amounted to more than 302 million Euros, with revenue and profit growth over the last four years of 16 and 15 percent, respectively. The company has 1 850 employees worldwide.
The Maakindustrie100 is published annually and consists of the 100 best-presenting SMEs in the Netherlands. The list is compiled by MT in collaboration with CFI (formerly MBCF Corporate Finance). “We look at manufacturing companies with a Dutch mother and a turnover of up to 500 million euros,” says Kevin Driesen of CFI. “We want to pay attention to the hidden champions of the Dutch economy.”
Publicly available information is used in the composition of the list. The criteria are revenue, revenue growth, EBITDA and return on invested capital. This leads to four rankings, where each ranking amounts to a certain number of points. By adding up all those points, you get a total score. Just as in 2018, Verder Group tops the list.”
“We are delighted to represent the Verder brand and its wide range of products and solutions in Africa and remain grateful for the continued support of our clients, partners and peers which contributes to the growth of the local and international business,” Darryl Macdougall, Managing Director, Verder Pumps South Africa concludes.
