Founded in 2003, Acceo is an independent player active in elevator inspection and monitoring services, regulated accessibility audits and energy efficiency audits. The group also has a center of excellence for vertical transportation providing advice for elevator design in new and existing buildings. Its clients are property owners in the commercial or administrative sector (e.g. Unibail Rodamco, BNP, Allianz, EDF, Casino), municipalities or regional authorities, schools and universities, hospitals, social sector organizations, as well as property managers (e.g. Foncia, Citya, Nexity, Square Habitat). Headquartered in Gémenos near Marseille, Acceo operates a commercial network of 17 independently-managed agencies in France, Belgium and Spain.

Investment rationale

Property owners and managers are increasingly confronted with complex technical and administrative requirements to comply with safety and sustainability regulations. Acceo offers independent advice and specialist expertise to deal with these obligations and shoulder the burden for the customers. The company’s professionalism and proximity to its customers has resulted in strong customer loyalty and impressive growth on which it can build to further develop its business in the coming years.

Growth strategy

Acceo has the ambition to double its size over five years by

  • strengthening its position in France
  • further geographical expansion (initially in Belgium and Spain)
  • expanding into adjacent services

Our track record as a growth investor together with our European dimension will enable us to help achieve Acceo’s ambitions.
