BNP Paribas Fortis Private Equity invested in Novy in 2005, followed by Sofindev and Korys who joined in 2010 and 2016 respectively.
Novy has completed a very strong growth trajectory, thanks in part to internationalisation and a farreaching focus on the quality of its products and services. Under the wings of Middleby, Novy will be able to further expand its premium brand. Within the Middleby family, Novy will be able to benefit from the American group's international network and innovative know-how to continue its growth.
