CBG Acciai is a leading manufacturer of premium band saw blades with applications in the printing, wood, meat, stone and recycling industries. The Group generates more than 70% of its sales abroad, leveraging on its strong know-how developed over a century of presence in the market. Over the years, the company has carried out a buy-and-build strategy resulting in a diversified Group able to provide solutions across all relevant applications and able to position itself as an industry leader.
In April 2022, together with Azimut Libera Impresa, HLD acquired a minority stake in the company. CBG Acciai operates in a market niche, with annual growth of 5-7%, driven by technological trends, as well as specific industrial drivers such as the increase in timber use and meat consumption or the growth of the recycling industry.
HLD recognized in CBG the characteristics of a leading player in a growing market operating in a fragmented and competitive landscape with significant room for M&A opportunities both in Italy and abroad.
