During more than 10 years, Motion Equity Partners has supported the development of Tokheim, the European leader in the production and maintenance of petrol distribution systems.
During Motion Equity Partners’ investment period, the company’s sales have more than doubled, from €360m to over €700m, thanks to industrial development in Asia and in Latin America, and an ambitious external growth strategy (20 acquisitions completed, all crossborder).
The implemented strategy enabled the transformation of the Group from a leading national player at acquisition into a global leader.
Under Motion Equity Partners’ impulsion, Tokheim rapidly built up its international presence, becoming a worldwide leader on its market by:
- Building the Group into a new dimension through greenfield development and external growth, with more than 20 add-ons completed, and doubling its sales
- Drove greenfield development in emerging markets such as Asia, India and Latin America to re-balance Tokheim’s geographical footprint toward fast-growing markets
- Successful investment in value-added services with 2 sizeable add-ons: Fairbanks (data analysis) and Start Italia (innovative gauges).
