We strongly believe that, leveraging on H.I.G.’s experience and international presence, EYSA will be able to continue to expand its portfolio of services and international footprint, both organically and inorganically.”

Javier Delgado, CEO of EYSA, commented: “The investment by H.I.G. is great news for EYSA and its stakeholders.
