SAF-Holland purchases Italian company


SAF-Holland has acquired Italy-based axle and suspension system specialists, Tecma Srl.

“With the acquisition of Tecma Srl, we are strengthening our product portfolio in the field of applications for special vehicles,” said SAF-Holland CEO, Alexander Geis. “We will also be able to offer our customers special axle systems that were previously not part of our product portfolio. This will enable us to further expand our position as one of the leading one-stop-shop providers in the commercial vehicle industry for suspension-related applications.”

Tecma develop and manufacture customer-specific axle systems and suspensions for special vehicles and heavy-duty applications, which are developed in close cooperation with vehicle manufacturers according to customer requirements. The company currently employs about 60 people and operates a development and production site in Verona, Italy.

For many years there has been a close partnership between Tecma Srl and IMS Group Benelux, which was acquired by SAF-Holland in January 2024.

“The acquisition of Tecma Srl is an expression of our strict M&A strategy,” said SAF- Holland CFO, Frank Lorenz-Dietz. “We are securing profitable growth and a targeted addition to the SAF-Holland Group. With the integration of Tecma Srl, further potential can be realised, in particular through the global SAF-Holland sales organisation and joint sourcing.”
