Riverside acquires Galvanina
The Riverside Company, a US private equity firm with a portfolio of more than 90 companies, has acquired Galvanina, a Rimini, Italy-based producer of premium mineral water and traditional and organic soft drinks owned by the Mini family.
“We plan to help transition a family-run business to an elevated global company, while maintaining Galvanina’s authenticity, quality, innovation, creativity and customer-oriented culture” said Riverside Managing Partner Karsten Langer.
A fourth-generation family-owned company founded in 1901, Galvanina sells its products in glass and PET bottles and cans to a global customer base in more than 35 countries, with the USA, Italy and Canada representing its largest markets in 2018.
Galvanina’s portfolio is renowned for its high-quality, healthy and natural products made in Italy from fresh and pure organic ingredients.
The company has three production facilities in Rimini and Apecchio.
