VarroTec prepares for growth by joining new industrial group

Include Industries acquires majority stake in VarroTec to accelerate and expand glass coating technology globally.

Dutch industrial accelerator Include Industries has acquired a majority stake in VarroTec International B.V.. In 2023, Ryan van Esch and Carel van der Leegte, founders of VarroTec, approached Include Industries to help them realize their ambitious strategic goal: becoming the global leader in glass post-treatment technology ensuring continuous manufacturing of glass packaging. Based on the company scaling experience of Include Industries leaders, Ilko Bosman (CFO) and Daan Kersten (CEO), as well as their template-based growth platform, they concluded teaming up would be the best way to continue VarroTec’s sustainable global expansion.

Since its inception in 2017, VarroTec has installed its Hot-End Coating Hoods and Cold-End Coating Spray bridges around the world to allow the largest glass container manufacturers to improve their process uptime, reduce the wall thickness and increase sustainability and quality. By continuously improving its solutions based on an intimate dialogue with strategic customers, VarroTec expanded its installed base and is now looking to diversify in post-treatment of returnables. Glass container recycling is expected to continue to grow and play an important role in reducing waste. Besides the supply of new systems, VarroTec will contribute to the increased reliability of its customers’ production processes by offering a complete portfolio of spare parts. Include Industries will support the founders, who will continue to run the company, in international expansion in Europe, North- and South America and Asia, attracting more talent and automation of the company’s support processes.
