Trigano announces acquisition of Italian distributor S.I.F.I

French camping giant Trigano has entered into exclusive negotiations for the acquisition of 70 per cent of the capital and voting rights of Italian leisure vehicle accessory distributor S.I.F.I.

A key player in the Italian camping, caravan, and motorhome market for some 45 years, S.I.F.I. is a national leader in the distribution of accessories in this market. It employs around 20 people and has enjoyed many years of profit, with the turnover for 2021 estimated at €13 million.

Trigano says that this transaction is fully in line with its development strategy for external growth and that it would allow the company to consolidate its leadership in the distribution of accessories for leisure vehicles and RVs in Europe.

Originally a distributor of camping equipment, Trigano then extended its business to the manufacture and marketing of tents, caravans, motor homes and mobile homes.

Trigano has two activities: leisure vehicles (over 90 per cent of its sales) – caravans, motor homes, mobile homes, and leisure equipment – trailers, garden equipment, and camping equipment.
