Riello Investimenti SGR has sold Trafimet Group to Kemppi

Kemppi is a Finland-based leading welding products specialist which specializes in providing welding equipment and management software and services for industrial applications and ready-to-weld needs to customers in Finland and in over 60 countries internationally.

Attilio Imi, CEO of Trafimet, commented, “Having a strong European actor in the welding industry with us will benefit both companies in the future. Trafimet and Kemppi continue to serve their own customers but I believe that being under the same ownership will bring sourcing, logistic synergies. An owner with a long welding market history will be able to offer good development possibilities also in the long run and support our growth strategy.”
