Frank­furt a. M. — Funds advi­sed by Triton (“Triton”) and Luxinva, a wholly owned subsi­diary of the Abu Dhabi Invest­ment Autho­rity (“ADIA”), have successfully comple­ted the acqui­si­tion of 100% of IFCO from Austra­lian Secu­ri­ties Exch­ange listed Brambles Limi­ted. Triton and ADIA have equal stakes in the investment.

IFCO has a global pool of more than 290 million reusable plas­tic contai­ners (RPCs) used for more than 1.3 billion ship­ments of fresh fruits and vege­ta­bles, meat, poul­try, seafood, eggs, bread and other items each year.
