Internationale groei en acquisities voor Gielissen.

Gielissen is a full service partner for interior projects, exhibitions and the realization of events and congresses. Gielissen’s motto is “growing together”, which refers to the high degree of customer focus of the company. Gielissen has been around for 80 years and is the European market leader, with branches in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, United Kingdom, Dubai and the United States.

Bart Wigman bought the family business back from an English investor in 1994 and has further expanded the business in recent decades. Both through various acquisitions and through the opening of international branches. Dozens of leading projects have been realized, including the Ferrari museum in Abu Dhabi and large parts of the new Rijksmuseum.

Karmijn acquired a minority interest in 2017. Our goal is to support the current management with further international expansion and acquisitions.

Investment: August 2017

CEO van Gielissen

André Hoeben

“We are expanding at great speed in the field of interior projects and exhibitions and certainly also events. With Karmijn as an active shareholder, even more opportunities are within reach and growth is not only achieved autonomously, but we are also actively taking over companies.”

Investment Director Karmijn

Niels Molewijk

“Gielissen has shown that it can also make acquisitions itself. Nevertheless, we already have a number of attractive potential acquisitions on our mind.”
