Faymonville, the manufacturer of semi-trailers  for the special haulage industry has reached an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares of “lndustrie COMETTO S.p.A.” based in the North of Italy. With this strategic decision, Faymonville set the milestone to expand in the self-propelled modular trailer segment and strengthens its market  position. 

“Industrie COMETTO S.p.A.” is one of the leading worldwide acting manufacturers for heavy modular and especially self-propelled trailers. In addition, the company offers special self-propelled equipment for industrial applications: shipyard and steel mill transporters as well as for handling technologies. Founded in1954, Cometto gained worldwide awareness by providing the transporter for the NASA Orbiter Space Shuttle in the 80s and by being involved in the ARIANE projects early90s.

By bundling Faymonville with Cometto under one solid brand, the Faymonville Group invests in new product segments and completes its product range.

The Faymonville product portfolio starts with the MAX Trailer brand which produces semi-trailers for payloads from15-60to. Faymonville itself is the leading specialist for transport solutions from 30to up to 1,000to on non-propelled trailers. The Cometto brand covers the self-propelled trailer market.

Integrating Cometto in the Faymonville Group will be beneficial for both companies: Faymonville will combine its knowledge in production processes with Cometto’s existing know-how in the self-propelled modular segment. The Faymonville quality management will not only interact in production but also in R&D, worldwide service and spare parts delivery to provide the best products and the highest service to its customers. “A higher production capacity together with an improved quality will be the result. This acquisition will significantly increase our market position” said Alain Faymonville, President of the Faymonville Group.
