August 2019 – P&P advises on the multi-facet acquisition by Rubix Group (part of the US investment fund Advent International) of Indis Partener in Romania

POP & PARTNERS advised Nicoleta and Horatiu Vadan during their exit from Indis Partener – one of Romania’s most important distributors of process/flow products to large customers in the food and beverage, automotive and paper industries –  towards Rubix Group, which is Europe’s largest supplier of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services.



Founded by Horatiu Vadan in 2003, Indis Partener is headquartered in Cluj-Napoca with subsidiaries in Timisoara and Bucharest. It is the largest distributor of Alfa Laval products in the country; a world leader within the key technology areas of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.


Lionel Aillerie, Head of M&A at Rubix, said: “Indis Partener complements our existing Rubix Romania businesses, Brammer Romania and Novotech. Together, they enable us to offer greater value and expertise in process, flow, mechanical power transmission and tools and general maintenance to this important market for Rubix.”


With the completion of the acquisition, Horatiu is appointed MD Rubix Romania, with responsibility for all Rubix businesses in the country.
