Heavy Clay machines: Sacmi and Cosmec join forces

60% of long-standing Vicenza-based company purchased. The goal: to reinforce our overseas presence

To boost and expand its standing on the international heavy clay machine market. This, in short, is the reasoning behind the Sacmi Group’s acquisition of Cosmec, a long-standing company based in the Vicenza area that specialises in the provision of automated heavy clay handling solutions.

Active in the industry since 1974 and nurtured through the economic crisis by the nerve and farsightedness of a group of Vicenza industrialists, Cosmec has an impressive customer portfolio and is renowned on several emerging markets such as Algeria and Russia. On the other side of the equation lies Sacmi, a global industrial plant engineering player that, through its Heavy Clay Division, is currently focussed on expansion in the markets of North Africa, Latin America, Russia and the Far East. Via this merger, Sacmi aims to become the prime provider of complete, automated solutions to the heavy clay industry.

The operation was completed, via the Group company Gaiotto, with the aim of making Sacmi a leading international provider of automated solutions to the heavy clay industry while gaining considerable competitive advantages in terms of technological know-how, networking skills and sales penetration on all the industry’s main markets.
