De Dietrich announces a stake in the engineering company AIGP, as part of its strategy to strengthen its process and engineering expertise to provide customers with complete solutions.
The two companies are looking forward to jointly developing new activities in the pharmaceutical and green chemistry markets.
AIGP has around 20 employees and generates €2 million in sales, mainly in process studies, engineering, project management and technical assistance. Following this operation, De Dietrich SAS will hold 35% of the company's capital, with the three founding shareholders remaining in the majority.
"This long-term strategic investment will enable AIGP to increase its capacity to develop and De Dietrich to better support its customers in the definition phase of their projects and to position itself on broader projects in terms of scope and services.
By combining our businesses and know-how, we are convinced that we can offer our clients creative, high value-added solutions adapted to their new technical and operational needs," said Jacques Moulin, President of De Dietrich, and Ronan Goupil, President of AIGP.
