Founded in 1933, Mega Gossau AG became the Swiss specialist for metal die casting, with proven competencies covering the entire value chain for customer-specific metal solutions and door and window fittings. Crédit Mutuel Equity was selected as a minority shareholder and will support the company's next step of its development, jointly with the current shareholders. Management will remain unchanged, thus ensuring continuity for customers, suppliers and employees.

Thomas Bitzi, Investment Director at Crédit Mutuel Equity, is convinced of the strong growth potential: "Mega has made excellent progress since the management buy-out in 2013 and laid a very solid foundation to implement further strategic initiatives. We are happy to assist in the further development of this innovative company, with its long-standing customer relationships and excellent market position in Germany, Austria and Switzerland."

Crédit Mutuel Equity is a branch of the French banking group Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale and is known for its investments in companies with great potential for success. It contributes additional know-how and an excellent network to support them in their national and international growth.

"We are convinced that in Crédit Mutuel Equity we have found a partner that will support our company in the best possible way for a long-term and sustainable development," says Daniel Schudel, CEO and co-owner of Mega Gossau AG. "The partnership with Crédit Mutuel Equity will allow us to further expand our site in Gossau and, in addition, to ensure optimal support and supply to our customers."
