Arcadia SGR S.p.A. (“Arcadia”) announces the fifth investment of the private equity fund Arcadia Small Cap II (“ASC II”), with the acquisition of 60% of EMC Colosio (“Colosio” or ‘the Company”) from the Colosio family, who will retain a 40% equity shareholding in the Company and will support an ambitious development and consolidation plan, also through acquisitions, in the lighting and electronic components industry.
Colosio was founded in the mid-80s by Giovanni Battista Colosio, and is actually managed by his two sons Fabio and Livio, respectively with an industrial and a technical/commercial focus. The company is historically known as a leading producer of lamp holders for traditional lighting and has then been able to turn and adapt its production to the new industry needs and standards driven by the advent of LED technology, also diversifying its end markets in the luxury design segment for residential, commercial and industrial sectors, besides many applications in the smart lighting solutions for roads and cities. With over 70% of export sales, Colosio has established enduring partnerships with its main customers for the co-design and co-development of new products. The Company has over 1,000 active customers, which include the main international brands of design lighting and the most important players in the street lighting market.
