Zenitel – becoming a leader in critical communications
Zenitel develops intelligent communication systems for situations where safety, guaranteed availability and sound quality are essential. With more than 70 years of pioneering experience in this area, Zenitel found a reliable long-term partner in 3D. Together, they want to continue to develop innovative products that stand head and shoulders above the competition.
Zenitel took its first steps in the maritime sector. From there, the firm entered the oil and gas market, and today, the customer portfolio of Zenitel includes security services, organizations in the transport and shipping sector, healthcare institutions and industrial companies.
The relationship between 3d investors and Zenitel dates back to 2002, when 3d investors came on board as shareholder. Koen Claerbout, CEO of Zenitel, says: "Over the years, 3d investors has continued to support Zenitel, even during difficult periods. They even guaranteed a successful capital increase after our last funding round.”
More than an investor: corporate builders
Not only are they reliable investors, according to Koen, 3d investors also actively helps Zenitel to grow: "They assisted us in investing our time, energy and resources in our core business.”
“3d investors pushed us to restructure our activities. By returning to our roots, we had seen a solid foundation on which to rebuild the company, both organically and through acquisitions," Koen continues. "We were able to focus on our strengths once more. With a sophisticated strategy aimed at developing and marketing superior and innovative products, we made Zenitel the leading provider of crucial communication solutions. This would not have been possible without 3d investors. I consider them business builders, not just a traditional private equity fund.”
