Berk Partners sold their interest in Womitex to Blycolin Groep in mid-July together with Rabo Participaties. Womitex, founded in 1982 and based in Almere, is active in the sale and rental of catering canteens in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany and has built up a good position in recent years in these countries. Both Berk and the management of Womitex see the takeover as a logical step in a sector characterized by consolidation. With the acquisition of Womitex, Blycolin wants to take an important step in strengthening its North European market position in linen and catering services.
