Clairfield advises the Boccacci family on the sale of a majority stake in Fonderia Boccacci

The Boccacci family sold a majority stake in Fonderia Boccacci to Consilium Private Equity.

The Boccacci family sold a majority stake to Consilium, through Consilium Private Equity Fund IV. The Boccacci family retains a significant minority shareholding and will continue to collaborate operationally, together with key members of top management, including the current CEO, with the aim of continuing the company’s ambitious growth path.

Founded in 1969 and headquartered in Piana Battolla (La Spezia, Italy), Fonderia Boccacci is a European leader in the design and production of grey and spheroidal cast iron castings of medium and large size for various industrial sectors. The company boasts a highly loyal customer portfolio of primary international standing in the energy, wind, machine tool, naval, and transport industries.

Consilium believes that Fonderia Boccacci can further strengthen its leadership position in its reference markets and grow by further expanding its customer base, by leveraging the excellence of its technical know-how, its highly automated production footprint, which has been consolidated by recent major investments, the ample production capacity available, the management’s decades of experience and a reputation unparalleled in Europe in terms of technological innovation.

Fabio Boccacci, president of Fonderia Boccacci, said “Fonderia Boccacci has completed an important phase of development and consolidation in recent years, which has enabled it to become one of the main European players in the sector in terms of know-how, reputation, and technological advancement. Consilium represents for the family and for the company the ideal partner in the path of further growth and progressive internationalisation.”

“Consilium’s entry into Fonderia Boccacci’s capital represents an important catalyst for a further phase of the company’s growth,” said Angelo Lazzari, CEO of Fonderia Boccacci, “with the aim of consolidating the company’s international presence and strengthening its ability to innovate and compete in various outlet sectors. This path will also offer opportunities to increase employment’.
The investment in Fonderia Boccacci is the second operation carried out by Consilium Private Equity Fund IV, which closed its fundraising in June 2022, reaching its EUR 110 million fundraising target, focusing on Italian SMEs with high development potential, a position of excellence in their sector, and a strong export orientation.
