EMZ SUPPORTS THE MANAGERS OF LABELYS ALONGSIDE BPIFRANCE

In December 2020, the managers of Labelys take control of the company with the support of EMZ and Bpifrance to finance its active external growth stratégy in Europe.

 

Labelys designs, prints and distributes premium auto-adhesive labels used in various end-markets in France, Switzerland and Spain.

 

Initially part of CPI (Chevrillon Philippe Industrie), Labelys became independent in 2018, led by Grégoire Desmettre (CEO) and Julien de Swaan (CFO) supported by Bpifrance and Purple Development.

 

In December 2020, EMZ structured a management-sponsored transaction on Labelys alongside Grégoire Desmettre (CEO) and Julien de Swaan (CFO), as well as Bpifrance which reinvested in the transaction, with the aim to increase the management’s stake and finance the group’s active external growth strategy in Europe.

 

Following the transaction, Labelys completed the acquisition of Satergraf, the #1 producer of auto-adhesive labels in Spain and intends to pursue its active external growth strategy in Europe over the coming years.
