Milan, 18 July 2019
F2A, a company controlled by Ardian and a leading provider of outsourcing solutions in Italy for over 50 years, offering an integrated and flexible system for specialised services and expertise in HR and Finance and Administration, announces its acquisition of Elaborazioni Casagrande Srl.
Elaborazioni Casagrande has been providing personnel management and administration services for almost 25 years from its offices in Gradisca di Isonzo (Gorizia), where Franco Casagrande and Riccardo Tessarolo lead a team of 16 employees.
With the acquisition of Casagrande, F2A now has over 2,500 clients, over 800 employees and has expanded into a new geographic area, further extending its coverage on the Italian market.
The acquisition was completed on 27 June 2019 and allows F2A to accelerate its drive to be a central player in the supply of specialised services to Italian and international companies, ensuring additional professional expertise to enable it to respond to the needs of Italian SMEs using a multi-platform approach.
“This acquisition, which comes a few months after our purchase of the Selesta Ingegneria attendance software business, Archimede SRL and, more recently, CMP Consulting Group, further consolidates F2A’s distinctive position on the market as the leading Italian company in the outsourcing of personnel management and administration services”, said Raul Mattaboni, Vice President and CEO of F2A. “It also represents an opportunity to improve our coverage in the north east through a new organisation that will work alongside our Pordenone office”.
“I have always believed in the importance of technological innovation as an essential tool in meeting the increasing number of requirements of businesses. With F2A all our clients, particularly large groups operating in different regions around Italy and abroad, can take advantage of the additional developments, including in Artificial Intelligence, announced recently by F2A”, confirms Franco Casagrande founding partner of Elaborazioni Casagrande.
The advisors used in this acquisition were Studio Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli & Partners.
