Trigano in negotiations to buy BIO Habitat from Bénéteau Group

Trigano is negotiating with Bénéteau Group for the acquisition of BIO Habitat and its subsidiary BIO Habitat Italia. Bénéteau’s Housing division, which includes brands such as O’hara, IRM, and Coco Sweet, is a significant player in the construction of mobile home accommodation in Europe with seven production sites in France and Italy and 900 employees. The division generated a turnover of €257.2 million in 2022.

The move is part of Trigano’s strategy of development in the dynamic segment of the outdoor hospitality sector in Europe.

If the acquisition goes through, Trigano expects to benefit from synergies in purchasing, logistics, and manufacturing methods. The completion of the acquisition is expected by the end of 2023, pending information and consultation procedures with BIO Habitat’s employee representative bodies and approval from the French Competition Authority.
