the company

  • Located in Montpon-Ménestérol, in the Dordogne region, Grégoire group is one of the major players in the French market of window frame, shutter and door manufacturing for both individual (through their subsidiary Menuiseries Grégoire) and collective housing contractors (through their subsidiary Sotrap).
  • Grégoire is one of the few manufacturers which uses all three main materials in the industry (wood, PVC and aluminium) and generates sales of about €80M with c.650 employees.


Development through both organic and external growth

Founded in Dordogne in 1907, the Grégoire group was managed by the third generation of the Grégoire family when they approached Parquest Capital in 2007 with a view to setting up a LBO aimed at organising the family transmission and giving the group strenghtened means to support its growth.

With Parquest Capital’s support, the Grégoire family plans to pursue the development of the Grégoire group and strengthen its position as a leading player in the market, by expanding internally and eventually by taking advantage of opportunities of external growth in a market which remains fragmented.
