Project Description

FROM FMO:

WHO IS OUR CLIENT

Visscher Caravelle Mexico S.A. de C.V. is a subsidiary of the Dutch carpet products producer Visscher Caravelle (VC) from Genemuiden. VC's main business is the production of car-mats (>90 percent of overall business) wherein it is one of the largest producers in the world and an important supplier to many major car brands. VC has manufacturing plants in Europe and Asia and established a new facility in Mexico in 2014 to service North-American car manufacturing plants.

FUNDING OBJECTIVE

VC Mexico has signed new supply agreements with various car manufacturers that have their assembly lines in Mexico. Therefore, investments are required in the existing facility to increase its production. VC approached FMO-FOM for financing to be used for the expansion of the Mexican production plant, in particular the purchase of new sewing and weaving machine plotters and injection molding equipment.

WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT

This transaction has an excellent fit with FMO-FOM: Dutch interest transaction to a reputable company with international footprint, positive track record and good growth prospects. A yet to be conducted feasibility study should assess opportunities for recycling and using bio-based and recycled raw materials as inputs. Furthermore there is no commercial funding available for the required investments.

Investment Description
  • Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO)

The FMO will finance up to EUR 1.60 million for this project.
