Validation by the competition authority
In its decision of August 24, 2016, the French Competition Authority authorized the acquisition of sole control of the Alliance Marine group by Weinberg Capital Partners. It thus validates the draft sales contract drawn up between the two entities on 24 June 2016
15 years of concentration
Created on the basis of the Vidal Diffusion Marine distributor, the Alliance Marine group has become in 15 years the French leader in the nautical equipment sector. It is involved both in the direct distribution and sale of equipment to boaters and in the field of equipment and technical solutions for shipyards and boating professionals.
The importance of the group was built up as the takeovers went on, like that of Navimo - Plastimo in 2012.
