Breton SpA, the Treviso-based world-leading manufacturer of natural and engineered stone processing machines and systems, honing/polishing and cutting machines for ceramic tiles and high-speed machining centres for the automotive and aerospace industries, is now boosting its presence in the ceramic segment by acquiring the majority stake in Tecnema Technology srl, based in Maranello.
The operation was conducted in tune with Ing. Umberto Fava, stakeholder and founder, and creates the conditions for a synergic cooperation between Bretonand Tecnema aimed at increasing the group’s presence in the ceramic segment, with the purpose of decisively achieving leadership in all mechanical finishing phases for ceramic tiles and slabs.
With Umberto and Alessandro, the Fava family will continue to be the managing and propulsive partner within the company.
Breton now combines its renowned honing/polishing and wet cutting lines for large ceramic slabs with the innovative and high-performance automatic cutting and orthogonal dry grinding lines produced by Tecnema, which can all be integrated in the company’s IT system, in full compliance with the “Industry 4.0” approach.
With Tecnema, a pioneer of Italian production and innovation in the heart of Italy’s ceramic production district, Breton consolidates its customer service structure in the Sassuolo district and makes available its subsidiaries Breton USA, Breton India, Breton Australia, Breton China, Breton UK and Breton Brasil.
