Expanding expertise in the French paint production and distribution sector

Deal Flash

The founders of Groupe Actéo (Théolaur Peintures) have opened the capital to GENEO Capital Entrepreneur and Bpifrance.

Actéo, which will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2025, is an independent, family-run group specializing in the production and distribution of building and decorative paints for a clientele of construction professionals.

Oaklins quickly convinced us of their understanding of the paint sector and their ability to identify investors who aligned most with our expectations and core business. We are very pleased to welcome GENEO and Bpifrance to our capital and thank Oaklins for their unwavering commitment and professionalism.
