The Dutch investment firm, Quadrum Capital, is backing JASA, also based in the Netherlands. JASA manufactures packaging machines and complete weighing and packaging lines. With this cooperation, JASA wants to further accelerate its international growth.
JASA does not only build these machines and lines. It designs and assembles them too. As a system integrator, JASA takes full responsibility for the total sorting, weighing, and packaging process and the filling and sealing of packages, robotized or not. For more than 35 years, thousands of food producers and packers worldwide have relied on JASA's expertise.
In recent years, JASA has expanded substantially. It has done so in line with the pillars of innovation, internationalization, and professionalism. A strong innovation force characterizes the company. One of the innovations it wants to contribute to is reducing the use of plastic, energy, and air. All its newly developed packaging machines support paper-based packaging solutions. These solutions have found their way to major supermarket chains all over the world.
JASA does not focus solely on innovative strength. High-quality service and close customer cooperation are paramount to this company too. These three pillars drive JASA's significant growth in the Netherlands and abroad. That is also partly due to experienced, driven employees led by an ambitious management team.
Eduard de Haan heads this team. As CEO, he has worked with many of the management team members. "We're very excited about Quadrum Capital investing in JASA. Quadrum's no-nonsense mentality fits our DNA perfectly. The true knowledge, genuine commitment, and interest in our business and markets were decisive in choosing to partner with them," says Eduard.
This investment in JASA means Quadrum Capital has given substance to the packaging domain within its third fund. Dennis de Buijzer, Investment Manager at Quadrum, explains: "Demand for healthy, locally produced fresh products is growing. That offers many opportunities for JASA."
"Thanks to its innovative, patented technology, it's responding excellently to the trend toward flexible, lightweight, sustainable packaging. We have great confidence in their team. It's also a good fit with us in terms of ambitions, culture, and entrepreneurship," he concludes.
JASA serves the North American market from its Richmond office in the U.S. From there, Sandra Somford-Pannekeet, the company's founder's daughter, and her team, along with Quadrum Capital, will shape JASA's further expansion.
