International automation platform SCIO Automation Holding GmbH has attracted AEA Investors as a new majority shareholder. The transaction was signed on 06 July 2023, with closing subject to approval by the respective antitrust authorities. With the strategic and financial support of the Quadriga Capital Funds as a majority shareholder, SCIO was founded in 2019 through a merger of VESCON Group and Schiller Automatisierungstechnik. Since then, SCIO has significantly grown organically and through eight strategic acquisitions to more than €190m in revenues and over 1,100 employees in 2022. While Quadriga Capital Partnership Va fully exits its investment, Quadriga Capital Fund VI will continue to support SCIO together with AEA as a strong partner to accelerate the Company’s international growth path with a dedicated M&A strategy.
