Why we invested
At time of investment, Grupo Arca had over 16 years of experience and strong market recognition with top developers, architects, and the general public, allowing the company to create a solid, recurrent client base. Grupo Arca was led by founders and a management team with extensive experience in the industry, with excellent access and relations with key international and local suppliers, granting the company an advantage relative to its competitors in terms of product offering and price.
