Main-backed Oribi Group scoops up Bouwpas

Bouwpas is a platform for registering workers on construction sites.  

  • Main invested in Oribi in 2021
  • Bouwpas is Oribi’s fourth add-on acquisition under Main’s ownership
  • Oribi is an identity and access management software provider

Oribi Group, backed by Main Capital Partners, has acquired Bouwpas, a platform for registering workers on construction sites.

Bouwpas is based in Haarlem, the Netherlands.

Main invested in Oribi in 2021.

“Due to increasing requirements regarding security and compliance, the identity and access management market has been growing strongly for years,” said Ivo van Deudekom, Investment Director at Main. “We see many opportunities for Bouwpas to further grow into an even greater household name within the construction industry as part of the ORIBI Group.”

“In addition, we see concrete growth opportunities in adjacent markets where there is also a huge demand for access control and compliance solutions driven by legislation & regulations, such as infrastructure but also healthcare, for example,” he added. “Finally, we see commercial growth opportunities in the combination of Bouwpas and Certwell, the company that ORIBI added to the group earlier this year.”

Bouwpas is Oribi’s fourth add-on acquisition under Main’s ownership. Oribi acquired Certwell in February.

Main is a software investor in the Benelux, DACH, US and Scandinavia. It is based in the Hague and managed over €2.2 billion in assets under management as of October 2021.

Oribi, based in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands, is an identity and access management software provider.

No financial details of the transaction were disclosed.
