Fifth acquisition in six years. Linear and telescopic motion rails to strengthen the offering of solutions

The acquisition – the fifth since 2011, following Hegra in Germany in 2015 and TMT in Italy in 2016 – strengthens Rollon’s offering of linear motion solutions by extending its current range with complementary products such as the Monorace linear motion rails.

These will be further developed through the Group’s Research & Development and production processes. Rollon thus consolidates its positioning in the fields of automation and robotics in industrial machinery, logistics and railway applications, confirming its leading role in these sectors.

The Group expects to grow by 15% in 2017, with revenues reaching close to €100 million, thus pursuing its ongoing double-digit growth in the last 4 years.

These results are in part due to a proactive strategy of expansion on international markets, accelerated since 2013, with subsidiaries in Germany, France, USA, Japan, China and India, and Representative Offices in Russia, Brazil and the United Kingdom.

The Rollon Group employs around 500 people worldwide, of which more than 300 in the production plant in Vimercate. The staff and R&D department of T RACE will be fully integrated into the Rollon headquarters. The acquisition was finalized with the support of LGI (Chequers Capital) and IGI Investimenti Cinque. The legal firm DV Studio Legale and the tax consulting firm Fieldfisher supported Rollon S.p.A. throughout the acquisition.
