Actief is one of the largest independent staffing companies in the Benelux and Germany. Actief, founded in Belgium in 1988, focuses on the SME segment with a clear local-for-local and personal approach. As the specific needs of the SME segment are matched by Actief’s approach and service offering, the company has become the leading SME specialist in the Belgian market. Together with the management team, we acquired Actief Interim from KBC Bank in May 2011.
Since our investment, Actief has successfully exported its business model into international markets through selected add-on acquisitions. TiP Personeelsdiensten (2014) and Tence (2015) provided a solid market position in the Dutch market and with the acquisitions of ISU Group (2015) and TimeCraft (2017) a strong foothold was realized in the German market.
Today, Actief Interim is realizing more than EUR 500 million of sales and is well on its way to become a true Western European player in the staffing industry.
