In line with our ambitious growth strategy, we are pleased to confirm an exciting new addition to the BRUSH portfolio – renowned European transformer windings specialist Co.Bo.T srl.
Allowing us to secure a vital link in our supply chain and create extra production capacity to support the expansion of the UK electricity grid for years to come, the acquisition of Co.Bo.T also has the potential to optimise lead-times for BRUSH customers who are keen to connect to the grid.
Based near Vicenza in Northern Italy, Co.Bo.T supplies major transformer manufacturers across Western Europe – including BRUSH – and has built a strong reputation as a winding specialist in the 33kV-132kV bracket.
Nicolas Pitrat, CEO of BRUSH Group, said: “I’m very excited to welcome Co.Bo.T to the BRUSH family. Their impressive skills and expertise will not only help boost our supply chain, but in joining the Group they will further enhance our comprehensive solutions offering, ensuring we can support our customers every step of the way. Our strategic partnership with Co.Bo.T, combined with our investment into state-of-the-art testing facilities at our Loughborough facility, significantly increases our production capability while maintaining our renowned transformer quality.”
Davide Cornale, Managing Director of Co.Bo.T, said: “Having worked as a key supplier to BRUSH for many years, we are delighted to have the opportunity to become part of the Group. I am proud of what we have achieved over the past 30 years and the deal with BRUSH is a testament to the team’s expertise, the quality of our work and the high level of service we offer – that will continue in the future.”
As part of BRUSH Group, Co.Bo.T will remain a standalone business, continuing ‘business as usual’ and offering its transformer winding and assembly services to the whole industry, with all contracts with existing customers honoured under the new ownership.
The acquisition of Co.Bo.T is the latest in a series of complementary deals made by BRUSH Group which reinforce our position as a leading provider of energy management solutions.
