ACI Groupe is the union of Philippe Rivière and Patrice Rives, two entrepreneurs who share a common vision of the industry. Their goal is to spread French know-how throughout the world while federating around their holding ACI, a panel of niche know-how (manufacturing, special processes).
ACI Groupe is only at the project phase when I-Deal Development presents it to the Sopromec investment fund. Its ambition is to build an innovative industrial universe: it is based on a multi-sector, multi-skills and multi-technology positioning. Its objective is to go against the tide of highly specialized mid-sized companies, with a mono-product positioning on a mono-market, by reducing the number of intermediaries and suppliers for its customers. Saving time, optimizing lead times and reducing costs, the advantages of a single contact are numerous. ACI Groupe has been able to combine a variety of skills in order to respond to this problem of interoperations between all these industry trades.
Sopromec Participation’s investment in the capital of Sopromec Participation supports ACI in its expansion phase. This private investment fund, owned by the Gorgé family, gives the ACI Group the means to finance the launch of its build up and, through this, the ambitious strategy of deploying future acquisitions.
