After 25 years of development, Formulaction’s founder Gérard Meunier started to transfer responsibilities to key managers three years ago, anticipating the transaction for the group. After a competitive process involving strategic acquirors from all over the world, Verder Group was chosen as the best strategic fit to work alongside the company’s management. Verder Group has acquired 100% of shares.
