3d investors invests in Jati & Kebon, an international player in outdoor furniture24 may 2022
Together with founder Johan Verbeke and the management team of Jati & Kebon, 3d investors will help build the growth of Jati & Kebon in the coming years. Johan Verbeke remains active in the company he has built and reinvests together with the management.
Jati & Kebon, based in Nazareth, has more than 25 years of experience in the design, production and sale of outdoor furniture. Its origins lie in the Verbeke family business through which the second generation, in 1995, started selling teak furniture. In order to meet the increasing demand and to be able to guarantee an optimal quality, in-house production facilities were set up in China and Indonesia. Meanwhile, Jati & Kebon has grown into a global player and established name in the outdoor furniture segment. It is one of the jewels of the Belgian ecosystem of outdoor furniture. Its customer base extends to more than 30 countries. The company has built up a strong position in the United States and Canada, among other countries, thanks to many years of partnerships with strong online and omnichannel retailers. Jati & Kebon employs 350 people in Belgium, China and Indonesia and achieves sales of around EUR 45 million.
Johan Verbeke, founder of the company: "The entry of 3d investors in our capital is a well-considered decision, which fits in with our ambition to further expand Jati & Kebon internationally. With 3d investors, we are bringing on board complementary "business builders" who will help develop the company's strong growth potential from within the existing corporate culture. I am excited to work with the management team and 3d investors to continue building our beautiful company over the next few years."
Yves De Backer, associate partner 3d investors: "We are strongly impressed how Jati & Kebon has grown into an international player in outdoor furniture by focusing on quality, flexibility and customer orientation. The entrepreneurship of Johan Verbeke and his management team play a key role in this and fits perfectly with the family and entrepreneurial values of 3d investors. This partnership fits seamlessly into our passion to help strong companies grow to the "next level" internationally."
