Health & Care

Company profile

Arseus Medical is a distributor of equipment and consumables for the medical sector (hospitals, medical specialists, care homes) and supplier of associated services.

From its head office in Bornem  (Belgium), Arseus is active in the following four market segments; ophthalmology (exclusive distribution of high-tech equipment to ophthalmologists), specialised medical equipment on an exclusive basis for numerous other specialisations (such as cardiology, gynaecology, laser surgery, intensive care units, neuro and vascular surgery, etc.), medical supplies (sale and rental of mobility articles, orthopaedic materials and ostomy and incontinence materials), and the provision of first line care (diagnostics, consumables and devices for general practitioners, rest homes and home care).

In each of these four market segments, the firm holds a leading position and has a strong basis to build on and to expand into adjacent markets. In 2016, Arseus Medical realised a turnover of EUR 30 million with 90 employees, half of whom hold commercial positions.

Investment rationale

For the coming years, Arseus Medical has the ambition to grow both organically and by doing acquisitions, while capitalising on an increased demand for care from an ageing population and technological developments that will enable it to provide better care at a lower cost. The company also has the ambition to lead the consolidation in the Benelux of what has been a fragmented market until now.

Growth strategy

By providing this growth equity, all parties want to strengthen the company’s market position and  grow in each of the four segments. The further internationalisation of the firm is also a priority, with the Dutch market as primary focus. Gimv's experience in MedTech and Health Care Services is a valuable addition to Arseus Medical, which feels its strategic plan will be bolstered by it.
