Demcon investment annual report.
2020. The year that will go down in the books worldwide as ‘the corona year’. For us, it was also the year that proved once again what Demcon Investment exists for: to create value together. With innovative solutions that matter. Solutions that help people and society further. One of Demcon’s highlights in 2020 was the development of the DemcAir respiratory system. During the first lockdown, Demcon delivered 500 ‘DemcAirs’ to IC departments of hospitals within a few weeks. There was plenty of attention for this innovation. Also by Queen Máxima, who visited the production location in Enschede in April. Partly due to the attention that Demcon obtained around this project, 60 start-ups presented themselves in 2020, from which 5 investments resulted. In addition, we made preparations for the successful exit of Qmicro. Companies whose innovations we have seen rapidly mature partly due to our support are CryoSol-World, Bond3D, Alia Instruments, Scinus and LiGalli.
