Paris (France), November 30, 2023,



Based in Gennevilliers (Paris region) and employing over 150 people, Secan stands as one of the market leaders in the conception and manufacturing of tailor-made thermal management solutions.

Secan excels across all the key stages of its products’ life cycle. Its expertise has been recognized for more than 50 years in the aeronautical and land-based industries for both civil and military applications.

The company, which has been backed since 2016 by Quantum Capital Partners, is now entering a new development phase through its acquisition by Tikehau Capital. Secan will benefit from the expertise of its new shareholder in the market, in a context of increasing production rates.
