We have a detailed strategy for driving renewed focus and performance into the business and are excited to work with the team at Fichet toward achieving real growth in the coming years.”
OpenGate Partner Sebastien Kiekert Le Moult, who led the transaction commented, “The investment in Fichet Security Solutions represents many of the hallmarks of a traditional OpenGate acquisition where we have successfully created new value. As an underperforming corporate carve-out with a well-established, customer based, solid management team, and a highly regarded brand, Fichet has the fundamentals to build upon and we’re excited to begin our work immediately.”
Fichet Security Solutions is the ninth platform acquisition in OpenGate Capital’s first, institutional fund following earlier acquisitions of Power Partners, Bois & Matériaux, Energi Fenestration Solutions, Alfatherm, EverZinc, Hufcor, Mersive Technologies and Jøtul.
