Global Leisure Group, which consists of market leading play brands as SPI Global Play, Global Attractions, SPI Global Play Retail, The Play Installation Company, SkyRider and TechSpray, has acquired Dutch supplier of air- and foam-filled products Sidijk. With the acquisition of Sidijk, the group aims to strengthen itself in its position as an international market leader in play and leisure sector.
By doubling the production floor to 8.500 square metres in 2020, Sidijk aims to “become the European market leader in leisure total concepts within 5 years.”
The acquisition allows Sidijk to join forces with SPI Global Play and the rest of the group companies. This collaboration enables the group to realise ground-breaking leisure concepts worldwide. From fully themed Trampoline Parks and Indoor Playgrounds to Ninja Obstacle Courses, Multi Leisure Centres and a wide range of Family Entertainment concepts such as Glow ‘N Golf, SkyRider and Laser Gaming.
Ronald Rotteveel, managing director of Sidijk, commented: “Our market position, knowledge and creative solutions combined with the experience and financial strength of Global Leisure Group, enables us to accelerate our growth plans. In the past few years, we already worked together with SPI Global Play on several occasions which led to successful projects within The Wall in Utrecht and very recently a number of great projects for Center Parcs in the Netherlands and abroad.”
Also Mikael Wettergren, Group CEO of Global Leisure Group, is looking forward to the partnership. “Over the years, Sidijk has become a strong organization with experienced professionals and an impressive customer base. Sidijk’s modern confectionery department and expertise in building trampoline parks means we can offer high quality leisure concepts. The acquisition of Sidijk plays an important role in the future of the group, and is a crucial piece of the whole puzzle.” With a growing international demand for unique leisure concepts, there is enormous growth potential for the group. “We are therefore looking forward to join forces with the Sidijk team,” comments Mikael.
