Breteche Industrie, Shick Esteve's Parent Company, Finds a New Identity
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
After its acquisition in 2016, Shick Solutions
was welcomed into the Breteche Industrie Group as one of their many
world-leading entities. Shick Solutions and Esteve
Process, who joined the group in 2011, then merged in August of 2017 to form
Shick Esteve – a global ingredient automation solution provider.
Now, the management team of Breteche Industrie
and their key financial partner IK Investment Partners have decided to signify their
next generation of growth by revealing a new name and identity: Linxis Group.
This decision stemmed from the desire to reflect
innovation and transformation from within the company to an outward audience. Thanks
to strategic acquisitions, customer-driven business development and the continued development of global leadership, Breteche has continued to thrive.
“Within a couple of decades
our group has attracted and gathered 7 world leaders in the food and health
industry, whose job it is to ensure the seamless integration of highly
specialized equipment for our customers”, adds Didier Soumet, Linxis Group CEO.
Esteve’s parent company, Linxis Group will continue to serve as a unifying
resource. Their new branding will impact logos and marketing efforts across
individual entities of the group.
Linxis Group builds upon a sustainable CAGR of +14%
per year over the last three years to claim $264 million of revenue, backed by
the stability and strength of its individual companies. This puts the group in
position for further acquisitions and partnerships to complement global
presence and organic growth.
