Chetwode announces the completion of a Sale & Leaseback financing for Les Deux Gourmands, for a planetary mixer (industrial mixer-blender) and a depositor.
It all began with the realization that the Ile de France region was under-publicised despite an increasing demand in local products from Ile de France consumers. The two co-founders, Guillaume Caffin and Louis Bataille launched Les Deux Gourmands brand in 2012. Supported by a strong corporate indentity, the brand offers a large selection of sweet biscuits, mainly made from locally produced ingredients. Its customers are specialized distributors (such as fine food stores), department stores, parisian hotels and palaces, as well as private companies.
The aim of the Sale & Leaseback is to satisfy growing demand by increasing Les Deux Gourmands’ production capactiy, via the acquisition of two new equipment items, a planetary mixer (industrial mixer-blender) and a depositor.
Guillaume Caffin, co-founder explains : « it was very important for us to obtain this financing which will allow us to quadruple our production capacity. Chetwode’s expertise and responsiveness in the implementation of industrial equipment financing were key factors in the completion of our development project».
Jean-Baptiste Magnen, Chetwode President comments : «this transaction demonstrates that alongside satisfying the demands of its core customers and major equipment financing of the order of several million euros, Chetwode is also able to support start ups and accompany them in their growth».
