The Dutch DieVision, specializing in the production of diecutting tools and (the) market leader in the Netherlands takes over 50% of the shares of Aprisys NV, the Belgium market leader in diecutting tools. Through this joint venture the combination DieVision – Aprisys has become not only the leader in the Benelux but also has become more prominent in Europe.
DieVision is mainly present on the Dutch, Belgium, German and Polish markets. Aprisys fits in perfectly with their main presence on the Belgium and French markets.
The merger may in several respects be seen as a win-win operation. For DieVision it is mainly geographically / strategically a good move towards the south of Europe. In addition, the capacity can be optimized with the production capabilities of Aprisys (Brussels). Aprisys will increase with additional know-how and a better “back up” scenario. Both parties also benefit of course of the usual scale advantages.
Business partners also will benefit from the new combination. Now they can have access to a wider network and enjoy an even better service, expertise, innovation and industrial strengths of both companies, while the suppliers can serve a stronger group of customers
