Alco rents equipment and machinery for construction and industry and designs/ builds temporary and permanent pre-fabricated modules from four operating bases in Spain, Chile and Colombia.
The company was established in 1964 and grew organically and inorganically (build-up of 5 companies together with a renowned national private equity fund), reaching a turnover of c. €87M and EBITDA of c. €28M in 2007.
The financial crisis and a 95% contraction of the company’s market triggered an operating deterioration that ultimately made the debt burden unassumable.
