Paris, October 1, 2019. Neovian Partners, a strategy, development and leadership consulting firm, advised the management of the Mauffrey Group on the occasion of the exit of Siparex and the entry into the capital of Société Générale and Crédit Agricole, via its subsidiaries Idia Capital Investissement and Crédit Agricole Régions Investissement.
Created in 1964, the Mauffrey transport and logistics group is one of the major players in the transport of packaged goods and liquid and solid bulk in France. With sales of nearly €450M in 2018, the company has more than 3,000 employees at 38 sites in France and Europe. The company is chaired by Dominique Mauffrey and is now one of the top 5 French road hauliers of goods.
In order to meet the development ambitions of the Mauffrey Group and to prepare the change of financial partner, Neovian Partners carried out a strategic diversification study of the group’s services in order to identify the most attractive market segments for the company. The consulting firm also identified and qualified some 50 of the most relevant acquisition targets to achieve strategic objectives through external growth.
With the support of new financial partners, the transport and logistics group wishes to pursue its market consolidation strategy, in particular by asserting its presence in the Greater West.
“We are delighted to have assisted the Mauffrey Group in its exceptional growth. Working with Dominique Mauffrey and his teams has allowed us to strengthen our expertise in transportation and logistics and to accurately meet the requirements demanded.“
Patrick Richer, Chairman and Founder, Neovian Partners
