On April 24th 2015, Écart entered into a participation in the holding company, Rolloos Industries, which company in turn has acquired all shares in Rolloos. The investment in Rolloos Industries is in line with the policy of Écart to acquire a substantial interest in larger SME’s that hold a strong market position. Since Écart participates for an indefinite period of time, it concerns a co-operation with a long term perspective.

Since the decline in the oil market lasts longer than expected, a modified strategy became necessary. This required a different role of management and investors.
Écart sold its shares on July 22. The additional investments of the buyer and management provide the company with the necessary continuity.

Écart realized this acquisition, together with two ambitious entrepreneurs, Bram Masselink and Joost Lasschuit. Both entrepreneurs feature a proven track record. Masselink and Lasschuit acquire, just as Écart, a substantial interest in Rolloos Industries. In view of the developments in this sector, Écart and the new management foresee sufficient growth and innovation potential. Further expansion, for example through the opening of international service offices, is one of the major objectives. Moreover, the company will invest in innovations in the field of communication systems and smart camera- & crane security-solutions.
