Potomac Transactions advised Capron, the French leader in podiatry, on the sale of a majority stake to Siparex and Carvest

Capron Podologie is the French leader in podiatry and medical foot care. The company designs, manufactures, and distributes a wide range of equipment and consumables for podiatrists, with the most comprehensive offering on the French market. 

 Capron built its reputation and dynamism on the innovative nature of its “made in France” products, the quality of its service, and its unique ability to supply podiatrists with customised insoles. Capron is also developing a suite of industry-specific software and is stepping up the pace of digitalization to offer total insole outsourcing solutions to podiatrists and sports shops on an international scale. 

A leader in France, Capron already exports to more than 50 countries and aims to become the European leader in podiatry through an ambitious roadmap of organic growth and acquisitions. 

To implement this strategy, Capron is opening up its capital to Siparex and Carvest which are taking a majority stake alongside the company’s long-standing president.
