28 February 2019 – Vivien & Associés successfully advised Rubix Group on the acquisition by its French subsidiary Orexad of the long-established distributor Legoueix.
Orexad is one of France’s leading distributors of industrial supplies and a subsidiary of Rubix Group, which is the European leader in the distribution of industrial supplies.

For its part, Orexad will benefit from Legoueix’s agility, its expertise in the water and energy sectors, and also its cutting edge technological skills in the digital sector.
