Samputensili acquires SICMAT S.p.A.
HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL., June 18, 2015— Samputensili, a Business Unit of SAMP S.p.A. and well-known producer of grinding machines and gear cutting tools, is proud to announce the recent acquisition of SICMAT S.p.A., a market leader for gear shaving machine technology.
All the know-how of SICMAT has been transferred to Samputensili together with the most experienced personnel. Thanks to the synergies between the two Italian companies, customers worldwide will benefit from an enhanced level of technology and service support.
The continuity of the actual product portfolio will therefore be ensured, as well as the fast and easy supply of original spare parts, updated technical drawings and machine software that will be distributed by Samputensili and Star SU globally.
As a result of the acquisition, a unique strategic opportunity has been created by combining SICMAT’s decade-long years of expertise in the gear shaving process with Samputensili’s product development capabilities as manufacturer of machine tools and gear cutting tools. Gear shaving machines and related equipment will be produced at the Technology Centre in Bentivoglio, near Bologna (Italy).
The purchase of SICMAT allows Samputensili to broaden the company’s product portfolio and therefore move closer to the corporate mission of becoming a leading supplier of complete solutions for the gear manufacturing.
At the upcoming EMO (Milan, Italy – October 5-10, 2015), Samputensili will display the best-selling RASO 200 gear shaving machine.
