OpenGate Capital Completes Acquisition of Alfatherm S.p.A.

Del

OpenGate Capital, a global private equity firm, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Alfatherm S.p.A. (“Alfatherm”) just nine days after signing a definitive agreement with Emerald and PM & Partners, the shareholders and current debt holders for the acquisition. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Alfatherm will benefit from OpenGate Capital’s operational experience in the European PVC market that have been developed through the firm’s pre-fund investments. Under OpenGate’s stewardship, several initiatives will be implemented to leverage Alfatherm’s market position while improving upon the operations and manufacturing processes of the business.

Andrew Nikou, founder, Managing Partner and CEO at OpenGate Capital, commented, “Our interest in acquiring Alfatherm began nearly three years ago at a time when we saw a lot of opportunities in the European PVC sector. The Alfatherm business was really interesting to us, and the completion of the acquisition today reflects our firm’s philosophy of working with sellers to solve the unique demands for every transaction. I am incredibly proud of our team for staying the course over the past two and a half years, and welcome Alfatherm into the OpenGate family of companies.”

Alfatherm was established more than 50 years ago and is the fourth largest European PVC film manufacturer, focused on the production and sale of rigid, semi-rigid and flexible PVC films that are used for various applications. The business operates three manufacturing sites in the Milan area and has long-term customer relations that reach across 60 countries. Alfatherm products are concentrated across five main business units including:

  • Surface decorations
  • Capsules and sleeves
  • Packaging
  • Adhesive tapes
  • Stationery

OpenGate Capital has previously invested in the European PVC chemical space through its pre-fund acquisitions including Kem One SAS, Kem One Innovative Vinyls, Benvic and Profialis. In March of this year, OpenGate announced that through its private equity fund it acquired Energi Fenestration Solutions, a North American manufacturer of rigid PVC window profiles and patio doors.

Alfatherm is headquartered in Varese, Italy, generates nearly €100 million in revenue, and has approximately 400 employees.
