Torqx Capital Partners further expands carwash initiative with acquisition of Wasdas
After the acquisition of Autowas H2O, Bubbles Carwash and XXL The Hague by Torqx Capital Partners (“Torqx”), the carwash initiative further expands to the North and East of the Netherlands with the acquisition of Wasdas. Wasdas consists of four premium carwash-facilities located in Drachten, Veendam, Emmen and Hardenberg and is known for its high quality carwashes and premium customer experience. The founders of Wasdas, Daniël, Barry and Jamila, join forces with Torqx to further expand the group regionally.
Hein Castelijns, Managing Director of the carwash group, is looking forward to further developing the four locations with the Wasdas team: “We are very excited about the partnership. Daniël, Barry and Jamila have been able to build a great carwash business consisting of four locations which are all characterized by their high quality, great appearance, and unique customer experience. This makes the four locations a very valuable and fitting addition to the rest of the group.”
With the acquisition of Wasdas Torqx continues to build on the ambition of developing a champion in premium carwashes in the Benelux. David van Hasselt, Investment Director at Torqx is enthusiastic about the developments, and says: “The acquisition of Wasdas is a very important step in our initiative to bring premium carwashes together and build a new Benelux wide network. Not only do we strengthen the group with four locations, we also gain a second centre in the North and East of the Netherlands from which we can further expand the carwash group. I am proud that we have been entrusted by Daniël, Barry and Jamila with their family business and am looking forward to our future cooperation.”
