The amount of the transaction has not been disclosed, but market sources value the company at around €250 million.

The fund has taken a majority stake in this company, in which other well-known funds such as KKR and industrial competitors have participated. The rest of the shareholders will remain in the hands of the founders, who will continue to manage the company.
