U-Power is the pan-European leader in work safety footwear, with a growing workwear division. The gorup serves a wide customer base of over 8,000 dealers, mainly small- and medium-sized specialized retailers across Italy (50% of sales), France (31%), Spain (7%), Germany (5%), and the UK (2%), thanks to a capillary network of agents spread across the territory.

Pier Franco Uzzeni will continue to lead U-Power as chairman and CEO. NB Renaissance will partner on the next phase of U-Power’s growth with Pier Franco Uzzenin and the top management team.
