MiddleCap Group, an international investment holding, expands its portfolio of eyewear stores. 9 retail stores of Galaxy Optical Services Slovakia s.r.o. will be added to the chain of FOKUS očná optika eyewear stores. 
The eyewear stores located at the Tesco chain in Slovakia will be added to the network of FOKUS očná optika eyewear stores purchased by MiddleCap in August 2019. FOKUS currently operates the largest regional network of eyewear stores in the Slovak Republic and the Czech Republic with a total of 165 stores.
“To us, the Future Vision stores open the door to a wider range of customers demanding excellent service and high-quality products. All these stores in the Slovak Republic will be added to the existing large network of FOKUS očná optika eyewear stores,” says Ján Jacina, CEO of the FOKUS chain of eyewear stores.
Besides the 9 new stores across different Slovak towns, FOKUS will also acquire over 40 qualified employees. Each eyewear store contains an eye centre allowing our customers to have their eyesight checked with the production of dioptric devices in one place.
Martin Proksa, Head of Private Equity MiddleCap Group commented on the transaction: “The acquisition of Future Vision opticians and their inclusion in the portfolio of FOKUS očná optika eyewear stores follows the strategy of the FOKUS brand to strengthen its position as an eyewear store leader in the Slovak and Czech markets.”
