Agricultural textiles group Arrigoni has announced it has successfully completed the acquisition of Financiere European Trade SAS and its subsidiary European Trade SAS (Emis).

The group is a French company based in Aix-en-Provence, active in the distribution of products mainly related to the agricultural sector.

Emis offers a wide product portfolio, including nets and films for multiple applications and related accessories, and is lead by the Moulias family, in particular by Sébastien Moulias and his father Philippe.

Arrigoni said that the acquisition would enable it to strengthen its presence in foreign markets – in particular in France – through a direct presence, broaden Emis’ product offering in the French market, and improve customer service.

The Moulias family will continue to lead the group’s business activity in France under the leadership of Sébastien Moulias, who said: “I am very happy for the successful completion of the transaction with Arrigoni, a leading player in the world of crop protection, which will enable us to consolidate our growth path in the French market thanks to the multiple commercial synergies.”

Paolo Arrigoni added: “We are thrilled about Emis joining the group, allowing us to have a direct access to an interesting and fast growing market such as the French one.

”I would like to thank the Moulias family, whom we have been working with since a long time, that has now chosen to share with us its future path.”
