Capital Croissance has helped to offer liquidity to the historical financial investor and the management step-up in the company.

Created in 1985, VLAD is the French leading player in the distribution and assembly of batteries for the healthcare sector. The Group distributes the largest batteries brands (Yuasa, Panasonic, Varta, etc.) and assembles its own batteries range. Its keys to success lie in the breadth of its product portfolio (2 500 references) and in the efficiency of its supply chain (delivery in 24h/48h). The Group displays a strong growth for over 10 years and its know-how was extended abroad with over 40 countries being addressed.


The Company is based near Tours and employs about 50 FTEs.

Jean-Louis Jarry: “We are delighted to welcome Capital Croissance as a new shareholder of the Group VLAD. We share some common entrepreneurial values and their presence among us will help us to reach a new step in generating over €20m sales by 2020”
