MBO Groupe, composed among others of companies Ouvaroff, SAIT, and Lyon Echafaudage, is one of the key players in the markets of insulation, scaffolding, and containment in France and Switzerland.

Positive synergies are expected to materialize from this operation, and Natixis Partners is delighted to have supported the family shareholders of MBO Groupe throughout this strategic operation. Natixis Partners acted as the exclusive financial advisor to the selling shareholders of MBO Groupe.
