I-DEAL DEVELOPMENT SUPPORTS FRANÇOIS DE BUHREN IN THE TAKEOVER OF GROUPE BALLAND.

Founded in 1991 by Yves Balland, the company specializes in continuing education for adults and offers a diversified range of programs on occupational risk prevention in the fields of handling, lifting, construction, safety (CHSCT, SST, PRAP), work at heights and electrical clearance. In addition to its national operations, the Balland Group mainly concentrates its activity within a radius of 200 km around its training centers (Montagny, St Symphorien, Auxerre and Sens) and issues 30,000 certificates annually. Thus, the company meets the expectations of more than 2,000 customers active in a variety of sectors (construction, food processing, distribution, local authorities, industry, energy, transport and logistics, temporary work and employment, etc.).

Yves Balland anticipated the transfer of his company in order to secure his assets while ensuring that the company’s teams have a project for the future. He placed his trust in Mr. François De Buhren, an experienced entrepreneur, who was convinced by the vision of the market in line with the development project.

Aware of the future development stakes for François De Buhren, the I-Deal Development teams responded to his expectations by introducing him to the financial contacts pursuing a patient capital logic and by defending under the best conditions his weight in the capital. Thus, they perceived at BDR Invest and CE HDF Capital an expertise and a flexibility making them the most relevant partners for the project.

“The teams of Ideal Development knew how to accompany the operation with pragmatism and commitment. At the same time a particular attention was brought to the financial structuring, so that it meets the requirements of anticipated growth in the short and medium term “, François De Buhren.
