A specialist in “smart industrial solutions”, Groupe ADF has joined forces with Abénex, accompanied by Etoile ID, to organise its new MBO and finance its development project.

Resulting from the spin-off in 2007 of Gaz de France’s industrial services activities, Groupe ADF has established itself as a leading player in the design, engineering, integration and maintenance of critical industrial tools in the aeronautics, energy and process industries.

Relying on a talented and committed team of more than 3300 employees, ADF Group stands out by the quality of its customer relations and its knowledge of production tools throughout their life cycle, and is recognised as one of the pioneers of the factory of the future. The group generates more than € 400M in turnover in 43 countries.

Supported by Actomezz, Etoile ID and ACE Management, Groupe ADF has doubled in size since its sponsorless MBO in 2014, thanks in particular to the acquisition of Latécoère Services in 2016, and is now entering a new phase of its development, which comprises three components: continuing the internationalisation of the group, strengthening its offer( with ( technological content and developing its operational excellence.

To write this new page in its entrepreneurial project, the management team, led by its CEO Marc Eliayan, is joining forces with a new minority financial partner, Abénex, while Etoile ID remains a shareholder, and is structuring new financing that will enable it to implement its strategy and pursue its external growth.
