Dortmund-based NicLen is the leading provider of prime dry hire services for professional customers across Europe. The company, founded in 1992, rents out high quality equipment including lighting and audio through its own, integrated logistics network to a large number of diverse events.

HOW INVISION PLAYS ITS PART
With Invision’s investment, the family succession from its founder Bodo Valasik to his son Nico is completed. Nico Valasik and Jörg Stöppler will continue to head the Company as Co-CEOs. Both have been running the Company in executive roles for many years. Invision invested in NicLen to support its future growth.
With Invision we have found a partner as convinced of NicLen and the dry hire industry as we, the management team, are. The continued emphasis on our strengths will be at the centre of our joint strategy.
