iClean Naarden also joins Torqx Capital Partners’ Carwash group
Torqx Capital Partners (“Torqx”) and the founders of iClean Naarden are pleased to announce the acquisition of iClean Carwash, iClean Carpolish and iClean Carrepair in Naarden. iClean Naarden is a high-quality carwash and is known throughout the Gooise Meren region for the exceptional all-in service experience provided by an enthusiastic team of employees. In addition to washing cars, iClean Naarden’s bodyshop staff carries out repairs and its polishing specialists ensure optimal car protection. iClean Naarden is an excellent addition to the Carwash Group’s existing network due to its extensive and high quality service offering, loyal customer base, central location and modern appearance.
In 2014, Hans and Bernard Musters, the De Zeeuw brothers and Ed Hamming founded iClean Naarden. Bernard sees the acquisition by Torqx as the right next step for the company: “We founded iClean Naarden 9 years ago and I’m proud of the successful business we built together with Cees and Max Klaassen. We have a background in the damage repair sector and were looking for a good way to reach the private customer. The carwash proved ideal to serve that side of the market and, as a stand-alone business, has exceeded all our expectations. Now that the time has come to hand over the company to further accelerate its growth trajectory, it is nice to be able to transfer our business to a professional and well-funded group.
Hein Castelijns, managing director of the Carwash Group, is very enthusiastic about the takeover: “With iClean Naarden, we are adding a proven total concept in the field of carwash, carpolish and carrepair; services we may also be able to offer at other locations. Moreover, I am very much looking forward to working with the team. Manager Max, together with his team, have made iClean Naarden a well-known name in the region and that is mainly thanks to the very friendly and helpful approach.”
The acquisition of iClean Naarden is a great step for Torqx in further building the champion of premium carwash locations in the Benelux. David van Hasselt, Partner at Torqx: “iClean Naarden is a great addition to our group and fits perfectly into the vision we have in mind. In addition, we are very happy that with this acquisition we have obtained a carwash less than a five-minute drive from our office so that we can finally wash “at home”. A great outcome of a very pleasant cooperation with the shareholders of iClean Naarden.”
