ProDesign Investment A/S Acquires Face A Face


AARHUS, Denmark, SAN FRANCISCO and PARIS—The ProDesign Investment A/S, owner of the ProDesign Denmark eyewear business, has finalized the acquisition of French-based eyewear design firm, Face A Face. The deal was signed yesterday, according to Lars Toftdahl of ProDesign.

“The Danish private equity group, Erhvervsinvest II K/S, which invested in ProDesign several years ago,” Toftdahl told VMail, “has been working to expand the group organically and look for new opportunities. We are very thrilled and excited about bringing the Face A Face team as partners into the group.”

He continued, “Pascal Jaulent and Nadine Roth of Face A Face will join us as they continue to manage their own, stand-alone business. The two groups will remain separate in their identities but will be able to share some resources which will benefit us all.”
