Winch Capital

Accelerating the change of scale of SMEs


Over the past 20 years, the Winch Capital team has been selecting companies with growth projects whose directors have a significant interest, providing them with the support they require to achieve their objectives.

Scalian: reinventing growth

The arrival of Winch Capital marks a turning point for the group: I have become chairman and we are quickly making acquisitions in our two sectors. The change of name from Eurogiciel to Scalian has completed this new phase.
