Embalpal has been designing and manufacturing tailor-made wooden components since 1984. The company's flagship activity is the manufacture of crates and pallets designed to meet the needs of its customers. Known for its responsiveness and the quality of its products, Embalpal has successfully developed two ancillary activities: panels and dunnage, and special applications for outdoor fittings. The head of Embalpal, who took over the company in 2004, now wants to sell it to pursue other ventures.


Ama Partners assisted with the sale. The firm drew up the necessary documentation for the transaction, sought out counterparties and handled negotiations throughout to the final closing. Franck Emballages, a company whose traditional business is the design and production of industrial packaging, saw a great opportunity for external growth. The acquirer points to a number of synergies between the two structures, as well as a number of areas for improvement, such as optimising sourcing and sales promotion.


« I approached Ama Partners to sell my company. I was looking for a buyer who could breathe new life into Embalpal while preserving the human relationships we had developed with our employees and partners.

Today, the mission has been perfectly accomplished with the acquisition by Franck Emballages. Ama Partners was able to find the ideal buyer and played a key role in the negotiations, enabling us to transfer the company under excellent conditions. »

Hervé Chiron, PDG Embalpal
