The Desautel group, a first-tier actor in fire protection in France, was chosen by the Bobigny Commercial Court (ruling with special jurisdiction) as the purchaser of the assets of Gimaex and Gimaex International and of the shares in Echelle Riffaud, specialized in fire trucks and firemen’s ladders.
The fully complementary nature of the offer made as related to these companies’ businesses and the dynamism and growth of the Desautel group’s companies convinced the Court that its plans were suitable and solid.
The new group represents both nationally and internationally a significant industrial and commercial force in fire trucks and firefighting.
For the legal aspects of this case, the Desautel group was assisted by August Debouzy, with Laurent Cotret, partner Charles Morel and Marie Guichot-Pereire.
For the financial aspects and assistance in preparing the business and financing plans, the Desautel group was assisted by KPMG, with Pascal Bonnet, Bertrand Fontaine and Francois-Xavier Goldsmith.
Founded in 1932, the Desautel group assists its clients’ development by providing fire protection for people and property.It concentrates its efforts with the same, single goal:proposing the most high-performance and reliable materials, systems and services.
