Based in Nantes (West of France), Proconect specializes in power connectors for the transport sector (railways, ports, airports, heavy goods vehicles) and the mining industry. The company generates nearly 70% of its turnover internationally.
Minilampe designs and markets custom lighting solutions for the aeronautics, defence, rail, industrial and marine sectors. The company has a long and rare historical know-how in the manufacture of incandescent lamps and has mastered their production to a high standard of quality
Our excellent knowledge of the sector coupled with our acquisition know-how enabled us to quickly identify interesting targets that met the operational challenges of integration and value creation for the group. This acquisition which was completed in a very short timeframe is a crucial step in Proconect's ambitious growth plan, driven by a management team and shareholders who share together a very relevant strategic vision of consolidating niche know-how for demanding environments. We remain very active in these areas, with other acquisitions under consideration alongside Proconect and several other transactions that we are also supporting, both on the sell-side and the buy-side
