ITAL Express - CAPZA hands over to Naxicap Partners

CAPZA sells its majority stake in ITAL Express and renews its support to the Group.

Naxicap Partners becomes the majority shareholder of the ITAL Express Group alongside its CEO Patrice Claverie and the management team. CAPZA reinvests in the operation alongside financial co-investors: Nord Est Expansion, Euro Capital, and CEGEE Capital.

 

Founded in 1975, ITAL Express is among the leading players in the European market for the distribution of spare parts for the maintenance and repair of vehicles and equipment intended for professionals: industrial vehicles (heavy goods vehicles, trailers), commercial vehicles, tractors, agricultural machinery, and other equipment (horticultural, forestry).

 

ITAL Express distinguishes itself through extensive technical expertise and differentiated advisory services. With a portfolio of over 2 million references, a network of quality international suppliers, and an efficient logistics platform, ITAL Express offers its customers one of the best quality/price/delivery time ratios on the market.

 

With CAPZA’s support, ITAL Express has built a robust growth dynamic combining organic development (expansion of product ranges, diversification of distribution channels, including digital) and targeted acquisitions to enter new markets: Consogarage in 2019 (garage equipment and tools), Anjou Diffusion in 2020 (technical parts for bearings and transmissions for agricultural machinery), and DPM Motis in 2023 (spare parts for gardening and forestry equipment).
 
The ambition, shared by the management team, is to continue enriching the offering and the addressed markets, both by supporting organic growth and through new targeted acquisitions in France and internationally.

We are convinced that ITAL Express has the potential to become the leading player in spare parts for professionals in Europe.

Benoît Choppin, Managing Partner, CAPZA

We are convinced that ITAL Express has the potential to become the leading player in spare parts for professionals in Europe.” – Benoît Choppin, Managing Partner, CAPZA

 

“The arrival of Naxicap Partners in the capital of ITAL Express is an opportunity for the Group, allowing it to continue its efforts to diversify its offering while carrying out targeted acquisitions in its core businesses.” – Patrice Claverie, CEO of ITAL Express Group

 

“Naxicap Partners is pleased to announce this investment in the capital of ITAL Express, alongside Patrice Claverie and key managers. The Group’s expertise, its positioning, and the quality of its management team make it an attractive investment opportunity with organic and external growth drivers in a resilient, evolving, and consolidating specialized distribution sector.” – Laurent Chouteau, Investment Director at Naxicap Partners
