New shareholding structure in December 2011. Lauro Giacobazzi and family, and the private equity fund PROGRESSIO SGR, already the main shareholders, purchases 100% of the shares of Rondine S.p.a.
In June 2013, the private equity fund PROGRESSIO SGR transferred its shares to Seramiksan, one of the largest ceramic manufacturers in Turkey. The company boasts a long industrial tradition, deeply rooted in the Turgutlu-Manisa area, just 50 km from Izmir.
In January 2015, significant investments were made, with the extension of a production facility, new lines for handling large sizes, automatic sorting lines and latest-generation packing lines.
With more than 100 collections available in a wide range of designs and sizes, CERAMICA RONDINE also boasts a wide range of porcelain stoneware skirting tiles. In 2016 extensive investments were planned and implemented in early 2017. These investments increased and optimised the production processes, thus also leading to the production of large sizes, from 80x80 to 120x120, and allowed the company to increase its competitive performance on international markets.
In October 2018 Italcer Group, parent company of the ceramic group of the same name controlled by the private equity fund Mandarin Capital Partners II, completed the 100% takeover of Ceramica Rondine. This acquisition follows those of La Fabbrica Spa, Elios Ceramica Spa and Devon&Devon Spa, which were completed in 2017. With Rondine, the Italcer Group, with turnover of nearly 200 million EUR, now lies in 6th place in the league table of Italian ceramics manufacturers. The entry of Rondine in the Italcer Group will allow the company to equip itself with new instruments and synergies that allow it to develop an increasingly leading role in domestic and international markets.
