Mecal joins Voilàp Group along with Elumatec, Emmegi and Tekna

The Modena-based holding company Voilàp (a brand which in 2018 replaced the historical name Gruppo Cifin), one of the world’s leading suppliers of technologies for the processing of aluminium, PVC and steel profiles, began 2020 by announcing a new industrial acquisition. The group acquired 80% of Mecal, the Pavia-based company , a historical manufacturer of customized aluminium processing machinery founded in 1978 by Ennio Cavezzale (who will remain the chairman of the company, while his wife Rosella Meschini will also remain operative), with a factory at the cutting edge of technology spanning 44 thousand square metres in Frascarolo (Pavia), 150 employees and a turnover of more than 30 million euros, 75% of which is generated abroad.
This is the fifth acquisition in six years by the Modena-based group, present not only in the business of machines and software for machining aluminium, PVC, steel and glass, but also in digital technologies for smart cities, with eight production plants (in Italy, Germany, Bosnia and China), a direct network of 40 sales branches, a workforce of over 1,400 people and a total turnover in 2019 of over 300 million euros, 90% of which generated beyond the national boundaries.
Mecal fits into Voilàp’s historical core business and consolidates the
Industrial division of the Group, strengthening a leadership already acknowledged in the world of aluminium, PVC and light alloy machining with the Elumatec, Emmegi and Tekna brands.
