VetPartners’ expansion across Europe is set to continue with the group preparing to welcome its first French practices.
The UK-based veterinary group expanded into Italy last year, with the acquisition of five practices, and expects further growth in France in the coming months.
Vincent Parez, managing director of VetPartners France, believes the effects of the global health crisis will herald further transformation of the veterinary profession, with increased demand to join larger groups like VetPartners.
To support its growth, the group is backed by international investment company BC Partners, which has Euros 17 billion of assets under management in private equity and credit across the globe.
VetPartners already owners 130 UK practices, with 5,522 employees working across nearly 450 sites.
