Founded in 1963, SAFI specialises in the development of anti-corrosive thermoplastic valves for industrial applications.
Capitem acquired a stake in SAFI through a leveraged buyout of the company from minority shareholders. I very much appreciate their approach, which is based on a strong entrepreneurial vision, but also on values of ethics and transparency. Aside from the financial aspect, Capitem lets me benefit from its diverse investor experience, which enables me to think more strategically in order to create value for SAFI. In this way, Capitem fully meets my expectations of a fund that assumes shareholder risk and is able to find its appropriate place by helping business owners make strategic decisions without interfering in operational management. In short, great professionals!
