Omnes Capital acquires Groupe RGF stake as part of MBI

Omnes Capital, with the support of co-investors Capital Transmission (Banque Cantonale de Genève) and Bpifrance, has acquired a stake in Groupe RGF alongside buyer Pascal Daviet as part of a management buy-in (MBI).

Joël Béraldin, director and 100 per cent shareholder in the company, has sold all of his shares and has acquired minority stakes in the new transaction.
Based in Pratz, the group specialises in the design and production of plastic and/or metal technical small parts in niche markets. Groupe RGF covers the entire production chain, including design, creation of moulds, injection, undercutting, overmoulding and automated assembly. The group has become a leading supplier of technical small parts for the manufacturing industry in a variety of sectors.
Over the last 10 years, under the management of Beraldin, the group has grown by means of a targeted acquisition strategy, having carried out four acquisitions. It currently has four production plants in France and one in Romania. In 2016, it generated sales of over EUR20 million.
Buyer Pascal Daviet is a plastics industry professional. His arrival at the head of Groupe RGF marks the next step forward in the company’s expansion. His aim is to strengthen its sales teams, diversify its product range and target new markets.
Laurent Espic, partner at Omnes Capital, says: “The group benefits from a number of competitive advantages: recognised expertise, high quality production facilities and human skill to support its clients in their manufacturing projects. We are delighted to be accompanying Pascal Daviet in this latest stage of Groupe RGF’s growth.”
Béraldin states: “I’m happy to be handing over Groupe RGF to Pascal Daviet. I have complete confidence in his ability to successfully pursue the group’s development plans.”
Daviet adds: “My aim is to continue to develop Groupe RGF by focusing its business development on products and sub-assemblies offering greater added value, in order to become a key player in the plastics industry of the future.”
