Investment highlights

5CS has invested alongside the Founders Gerrit Prins and Ricardo Toren. We have professionalized the organization by appointing a CFO and highly experienced dental advisors with strong experience in growing companies through acquisitions. Together with Gerrit Prins we have structured a strong management fundament as a basis for further acquisitions and growth.

From this point forward we will support Gerrit and the management team to realize their ambition to continue scaling the business by optimizing the service organization in the fields of HR, finance, procurement, marketing, communication and general management.

Furthermore, with 5CS’ strong experience in growing business through buy & build trajectories, we are closely teaming up with management in add-on acquisitions. These acquisitions will cement PUUR Mondzorg’s position as the market leader in the northern part of the Netherlands.
