Largillière Finance advised the shareholders of TB2A Group, specialized in aluminium profiles for the building industry, on their sale to the Profil Team Group, owned since 2021 by a consortium of investors with Targa Capital as a majority shareholder.
Founded in 1979 in Choisy-le-Roi (91) near Paris, TB2A is specialized in the cutting of aluminum profiles for the new and renovated building sector. It is the bridgehead of the TB2A Group, which also includes ETREA, active in the same trades, and Le Profil Plié, an aluminum profile merchant.
With some thirty employees, the Group manages the largest machine park in the Ile-de-France region, serving a loyal and diversified customer base based mainly in the Paris region, but also in Normandy and Oise.
The sellers, with minority backing from the Rives Croissance investment fund (a 100% subsidiary of Banque Populaire Rives de Paris), entrusted Largillière Finance with organizing the transfer of their Group. Following a competitive process, the entire capital was sold to Groupe Profil Team, an industrial player in the same sector.
Groupe Profil Team, also specialized in the design, manufacture and delivery of aluminum and steel profiles for the building industry, employs over 60 people in Azé (53) and Le Grand Lucé (72). Since 2021, it has been owned by the entrepreneurial fund Targa Capital, majority shareholder, with minority investments from the UNEXO and Ouest Croissance funds. The company, which operates mainly in the West of France and the Ile-de-France region, strengthens its position in the Paris area, a market driven by the growing number of building sites projects linked to the Grand Paris and Paris 2024.
The sellers, Jean and Véronique Charpentier, are delighted: "We would like to thank Largillière Finance for having brought together the best conditions for each of the parties involved in the transaction. We are confident in Groupe Profil Team's ability to develop TB2A and the TB2A Group as a whole, respecting the values of quality, expertise and customer service that have made it such a success".
Thomas Bureau, Managing Partner at Largillière Finance, concludes: "Groupe TB2A has built up solid expertise thanks to more than 40 years' experience, high-performance industrial facilities, proven technical expertise and real proximity to its customers. These are strengths that we quickly identified thanks to our in-depth expertise in the industrial sector, and which enabled us to support the transfer of this Group under the best possible conditions for our customers".
