Ydès Avocats has advised UI Gestion and Gault & Fremont in the acquisition of Emballages du Dauphiné et Daujas

May 15th 2019

With an active strategy of build up, the management and shareholders of Gault & Frémont have come closer to Jean-Jacques Pillon, leader of Emballages du Dauphiné and Daujas. This transaction enables the Group to pursue its strategy of broadening its product ranges, densifying its industrial tool and strengthening its position with industrial bakeries.

Founded in 1978, Emballages du Dauphiné and Daujas produce paper bags for the industrial bakery, traditional bakeries and supermarkets. These companies, which specialize in high-quality printing as well as in specific packaging, are characterized by a strong capacity for innovation that allows them to appear on their market as the referents in the custom window bag segment. Gault & Frémont has approached these companies to ensure the transmission of Jean-Jacques Pillon to its CEO Carmen Pirès and accelerate their development. The complementarity of activities and customers as well as the common industrial culture are assets for the growth of the two entities. Gault & Frémont is making its second acquisition since the entry of UI Gestion into its capital, thereby strengthening its presence in an active market that is constantly innovating.

UI Gestion and the Gault and Fremont group were advised by Ydès, whose corporate team was led by Laurent Nogaret, partner and Thomas Brillet, associate.
