Bormioli Luigi acquires Bormioli Rocco

Leading Italian tableware company Bormioli Luigi partners with Titron to acquire Bormioli Rocco tableware and pharma businesses respectively

Bormioli Luigi S.p.A. has partnered with Funds advised by Triton (“Triton”) to purchase the Pharma and Tableware business divisions of the Bormioli Rocco group. Both business divisions will be owned and run independently of each other, as Bormioli Luigi will acquire the Tableware division and Triton will acquire the Pharma division.

Bormioli Rocco is a leading Italian tableware and pharma primary packaging manufacturer currently owned by Vision Capital. The transactions are subject to regulatory approval in the relevant jurisdictions. Any necessary employee information and/or consultation procedures will occur in France and Italy at the appropriate time.

“With the historical acquisition of Bormioli Rocco Tableware, Bormioli Luigi will expand the perimeters of its organisational and material resources in order to develop original and virtuous ways of doing business in glass, to the advantage of client's interests leveraging on both Companies’ knowledge, culture and capabilities”, says Alberto Bormioli the President of Bormioli Luigi, the majority shareholders and founder’s son.

“We look forward to supporting Bormioli Pharma’s management and employees as new owner by investing in and supporting the growth and development of the business. Our strong industry expertise, gained through other investments in this business area and strengthened by senior industry experts, will contribute in taking Bormioli Pharma to the next level. We look forward to working together with the management team and the Board of Directors in building a stronger company”, said Peder Prahl, Director of the General Partner for the Triton funds.

Riccardo Garrè, executive chairman of Bormioli Rocco adds: “Bormioli Rocco, as one of the European market leaders active in the tableware and pharmaceutical packaging businesses, has been building its current presence over the last decades. These transactions are an important milestone since, on top of allowing us to pay off all financial debt, they are enabling us to continue with our strategic efforts with a more focused approach on the two respective single divisions. We welcome the new majority owners respectively, as investors who will support us in executing our plans and continuing to be the leaders in each of our industries."
