ACI is a group established in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, mastering all the special processes in order to position itself on low-volume but highly technical productions. The ACI group bases its development model on differentiating industrial consolidations responding to market needs in the fields of mechanics and materials for the Defence, Medical, Energy and Aeronautical Maintenance markets. The development of this group is based on the career path of its two founders, Philippe RIVIERE and Patrice RIVES, each of whom has some twenty years of complementary experience in industry and aeronautics. The ACI group distinguishes two complementary activities: ACI Industrie and ACI M.R.O, otherwise known as Together. I-Deal Development accompanies ACI in its project of industrial consolidation multi-site and multi-markets with high added value in France and internationally.
MBG is a group specializing in precision mechanics, and includes three complementary activities: the MDV entity specializing in the machining of unitary parts in medium series, the MPH entity specializing in the machining of large series and the assembly of mechanical assemblies, and PAYRAUD, the group’s third activity working in deep drilling of metals and plastics.
I-Deal Development accompanied the ACI Group in the acquisition of the MBG Group.
With this acquisition, ACI Group continues its build-up strategy, completing its know-how and its range of businesses. ACI Groupe’s managers decided to keep Mr. Bernard Boccon-Gebeaud in order to ensure the sustainability of the takeover project through his skills and expertise.
Philipe Rivière: “We chose I-Deal for its mastery of build up projects, its understanding of the challenges of our projects, and the strong entrepreneurial values that drive its teams”.
