On 15 September 2016, an important agreement saw Investindustrial (an independent investment company) become the majority partner of Arclinea. The operation was completed by acquisition by B&B Italia (already owned by Investindustrial) of majority shares in Arclinea Arredamenti S.p.A.
The Fortuna family, the sole shareholder of Arclinea since the outset, has stayed in the company with a minority share and continues to effectively manage the company. It now has the opportunity to accelerate its growth plan, thanks to the support of a partner such as Investindustrial, which sees design ‘Made in Italy’ as an industrial production sector with great potential for further development.
Arclinea has found unity of intention in B&B Italia and Investindustrial, in addition to the same values and objectives that it has always embraced. It was precisely this recognition that triggered the decision to enter into partnership and share projects for development, retail and contract on the world market.
