Fortaco has factories across seven European countries, in addition to a joint venture with Tata AutoComp in India.

“We look forward partnering with Fortaco CEO Lars Hellberg and his team, applying our industrial sector expertise to support Fortaco in broadening and deepening its offerings in current markets and expanding into new end markets where we believe the company is well-positioned for success,” said Johann-Melchior von Peter, senior managing director at One Equity Partners.

Closing of the transaction is expected in the second half of the year and is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
