Leading manufacturer of specialised interconnection solutions

At the time of exiting, 2Connect (“the Company”) was a leading manufacturer of specialised cables and connectors, designing, developing and producing tailored interconnection solutions worldwide. Its product portfolio includes specialised designed cables, moulded connectors, electronic packaging and interconnection modules.

Founded in 2000, the Company prides itself on setting new standards for interconnection solutions by designing high quality and cost-effective units in close co-operation with its long-term client base.

The investment was acquired in November 2018 from the van der Put family who founded the Company and reinvested alongside IK Partners. In April 2022 IK Partners sold their stake in 2Connect to Rivean Capital.
