Discover our success stories

We take pride in sharing the success stories of sellers, partners, and employees who have experienced our commitment firsthand in ensuring a smooth transition.

"We are pleased to have found such a good strategic partner as Adeleon, which will continue to live the values of the KÖHL company and positively complement and expand them in the future. For us, a decisive criterion in the sales process was that two family-owned companies could exchange and complement each other on an equal footing and that, in addition to the company's goals, the employees will continue to have an absolutely high priority as the most important asset."
Wilfried Köhl & Dirk Hartmann

Founders and former owners of KÖHL s.à r.l

“As a seller's consultant, I've found Adeleon to be a dependable and professional partner focused on common goals. Their management team communicates openly and has a successful history of acquisitions. As a family-owned business, Adeleon distinguishes itself from financial investors by emphasizing long-term, sustainable strategies.”
Marc van der Spek

Advisor to sellers in several transactions

“Belcotec is a successful Belgian multi-technology (HVAC/ELECTRO) project company.  Due to the rapidly evolving market, it  is vital to continue investing in people and doing business as an independent player on the market. Our people are used to work in a family-owned environment. It is this family approach and long-term thinking that makes Adeleon the ideal investor for Belcotec and its employees.”
Jan Vangeel

Seller and still managing director of the Belcotec Group

"After the acquisition by Adeleon, we were able to jointly transform WPG into a successful and profitable company. Our employees were warmly welcomed by the Adeleon management and the permanent staff, so that the stresses associated with the integration were quickly forgotten. Today, we are happy to be part of the Adeleon team and have found our professional home."
Jochen Clement

Sales Manager Region West, WESTFA Energy Group

"After the acquisition of the Nefco Group by Adeleon, I was given the opportunity to develop myself further. Over the years I have had the opportunity to learn a lot and gain new experiences within an international organization. Currently, I
am responsible as Managing Director for OK Gas BV in the Netherlands and have also been given the opportunity to join the international Executive Committee at WESTFA ENERGY."
Berry den Ridder

Seller of two subsidiaries to WESTFA Group

“Since I am a part of WESTFA Energy, a subsidiary of Adeleon, my work field is larger. Now I have colleagues in a lot of different countries. We learn from each other and work well together to achieve the best result.”
Marijn van Leur

Manager Logistics, WESTFA Energy Group

"The integration of the new subsidiary into Adeleon was always smooth. All colleagues are very nice and one was well received. With the acquisitions of other companies, Adeleon is growing, this is a promising sign for the future."
