Cefla strengthens its global leadership in the Finishing sector through acquisition of Jet-Set S.r.l., a dynamic industrial company based in Bergamo, specialising in the design and manufacture of digital industrial printing systems, both single-pass and multi-pass. The company, of which Cefla has just acquired a >60% share of stock, was set up in 2012 and has consolidated experience in the industrial field with regard to finishing and decoration techniques used for diverse materials, and with various ink types and technologies.
The company is active in various sectors, from the ceramic to glass and textile industries, from plastic and metal items to the decoration of components for the furniture or building industries. Acquisition has been accompanied by a generous injection of new capital and enables Cefla to join forces with the owners of Jet-Set as majority partner, with an aim to achieving common goals, focusing on continuous development and growth of the company over the coming years.
Cefla Finishing Managing Director Alberto Maestri says: “Acquisition of Jet-Set is a key move for us. It enables us to significantly increase the know-how, already existing in our company, in a sector – that of digital decoration – with huge potential for growth, both on Cefla Finishing’s reference markets as well as alternative sectors such as plastics, fibre cement and metal, in which the company has been investing for quite some time.”
Equally satisfied about the deal, Sergio Ferrari, founding member and Managing Director of Jet-Set, comments: “Cefla is an ideal partner and will enable us to pursue research and development in the field of industrial digital printing, in line with our mission.”
