Milano, 18 February 2019 – M-Cube Digital Engagement has concluded a further operation as part of a plan for growth that began with the recent acquisition of start-up Stentle. The French branch of the group, M-Cube France Digital Engagement, has purchased 100% of Carlipa, an important French digital signage and multimedia communication solutions company based in Paris.
The company run by Anthony Verdureau (CEO) was founded in 2002 and soon became a French leader in in-store communication. With a similar growth pattern to M-Cube, today it manages 12,000 stores around the world for over 100 clients including major groups in the fashion & luxury world such as Louis Vuitton, Dior Couture, Richemont La Vallèe, Maison du Monde, Lacoste, Monoprix and Orpi among others.
The purchase of Carlipa is extremely strategic for M-Cube, allowing the company to expand its fashion & luxury client portfolio into the French market and inherit Carlipa’s operational branches in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Carlipa CEO Anthony Verdureau commented:
Becoming part of the M-Cube group is a great opportunity for our company: we strongly believe that this operation will reinforce our growth on the market and allow us to offer even better services to our customers. I am very enthusiastic about the idea of writing a successful story with the M-Cube group and positioning our company as a market leader over the coming years.
M-Cube Group CEO Manlio Romanelli:
We are extremely satisfied with this operation with which we have achieved three objectives. These were to strengthen our international structure through a merger with a historic market leader with direct subsidiaries in Asia; to increase our potential thanks to the important software department established over years of development by Carlipa, with particular focus on the customer experience; and to add important clients to our portfolio, particularly luxury sector brands in line with the main M-Cube Group vocation.
