Investing for the long term, driven by sustainable progress
VP Capital is the investment company of the van Puijenbroek family. The start of the entrepreneurial history of this Belgian-Dutch family dates back to more than 150 years ago in the textile industry. Today, the family business still has a strong market position in the sector with sustainable workwear under the name HAVEP. VP Capital has been a major shareholder in the Telegraaf Media Groep since 1951; in 2017 that interest was contributed to the Belgian Mediahuis. VP Capital is also the owner of Batenburg Techniek. With a team of 12 professionals, VP Capital manages the family's investments in, among other things, real estate, agriculture, private equity and the energy transition. The family has a long tradition in investments, which they have always understood in a broader sense than purely financial.
Today, VP Capital mainly wants to invest in sustainable progress.
