On September 23, ADG dienstengroep and NPM Capital announced that they have reached agreement on NPM Capital’s acquisition of Zorgwerk. The proposed takeover will be submitted for approval to the competent authorities and is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Zorgwerk is the market leader in the Netherlands in staffing services for healthcare, social assistance, and childcare. The strength of the company lies in the digital transformation that Zorgwerk already has initiated in 2005, which involved creating a fully online platform used on a daily basis by thousands of healthcare professionals across the Netherlands.
This platform enables Zorgwerk to match the supply of, and demand for healthcare professionals efficiently and effectively. This involves short-term services (including emergency services) daily provided by organisations operating in a variety of sectors (including nursing and care, home care, healthcare, and mental health care). Care professionals favor Zorgwerk because the platform provides them with the flexibility and empowerment they need. This is consistent with the public demand among care professionals for greater independence.
Johan Terpstra, Managing Director of NPM Capital: “We are very excited to be given this opportunity to invest in Zorgwerk. The management, led by CEO Daniëlle van der Burg, was able to successfully digitise their business model, giving them a head-start we would like to build on further. We will be giving the team the freedom and opportunity to achieve their goals and further grow the company. We believe that, in partnering with the Zorgwerk team, we will do an even better job in matching the supply of and demand for care workers using digital resources. We will provide improved services to care institutions in a variety of sectors through temporary and well-qualified care workers.”
The acquisition of Zorgwerk will not affect any jobs: all staff will remain employed by Zorgwerk, while Daniëlle van der Burg will continue to serve as CEO.
