Voltan incorporates Garoc to strengthen its presence in the energy sector and enter the transmission and distribution market

  • Voltan, an international services group with a focus on energy transition and renewable energy, accelerates its growth following the incorporation of Garoc, one of the Spanish leaders in the assembly, commissioning and maintenance of very high, high and medium voltage networks in Spain and LatAm

Madrid, June 1st, 2023.

Voltan, the Spanish technical services group specializing in the energy sector, has incorporated Garoc, which will continue to be led by its management team (Baldomero Ruiz, José Antonio Caravantes and José Pablo Ruiz), thus entering the energy transmission and distribution market.

This is Voltan’s fourth integration since its creation at the end of 2021. With this latest move, Voltan, with a turnover of approximately €100 million, reaffirms its commitment to become a European benchmark specializing in technical services with a focus on energy transition and renewable energies. The services provided by Garoc strongly complement Voltan’s existing capabilities and will enable the resulting group to have a stronger presence in the energy value chain.

In parallel to the integration of Garoc, Henko Partners has brought Javier Gomez on board as CEO of the Voltan group. Javier Gómez, former CEO of Imasa Energía, has more than 30 years of experience in the energy sector and has held senior management positions in renowned companies in the sector such as TSK, Cobra, Initec Energía and Duro Felguera. His incorporation allows Voltan to have a top-level management team to help crystallize the numerous commercial synergies between the different companies and the international expansion of the group.

For Baldomero Ruiz “Becoming part of a project of sector consolidation as Voltan makes us very excited and, at the same time, helps us to face this new cycle of growth accompanied by a very professional team and with the support of a strategic partner as Henko”.

According to Javier Gómez “The acquisition of Garoc is a very important step for the Voltan group, as it allows us to strengthen our position in the market covering the entire value chain and increase our presence in renewable energies benefiting from the strong expansionary cycle in which they are in.”

Bird & Bird and Deloitte have advised Henko Partners on this transaction, while A&G and Cuatrecasas have advised the sellers of Garoc.
