Netafim

At exit, Netafim was a global leader in smart drip and micro-irrigation solutions for sustainable agriculture and other applications. Its solutions were used in over 100 countries. See how we helped transformed Netafim into a leading global micro irrigation player with a world-class management…

Together we achieved

  • The transformation of the business from “Drip-products” to “Smart Irrigation Solutions”  and the introduction of a performance driven culture
  • Re-focusing the business to its core irrigation business and investing behind new product development to re-position Netafim at the forefront of precision farming
  • Geographic expansion in new key growth markets including China, India and Africa
  • Significant growth in revenue and EBITDA

This was accomplished by

  • Attracting a world-class leadership team across regions and functions
  • Redesigning go-to-market, pricing, procurement and NWC practices
  • Investing in capacity expansion, R&D and new product development
  • Expanding its full turnkey project capabilities, which lead to winning the largest sugarcane irrigation project historically in Africa (total contract of US$200 million)
