Bascotecnia becomes controlling shareholder of TTT Ejes
REPLACEMENT OF THE MAIN SHAREHOLDER/ The Gipuzkoa based company reinforces its strategic position in the component manufacturer after purchasing the shares of Grupo TTT.
Bascotecnia, an industrial group of small and medium size companies specialized in manufacturing equipment for various industrial sectors, has acquired a 34,62% controlling stake in the Gipuzkoa based company TTT Ejes.
After this deal, that had Albia Capital as its financial advisor, Bascotecnia – which has been part of the TTT Ejes shareholding since 2003 – reinforces its strategic position in the automotive component manufacturer elevating its shareholding to 39.83%. The rest of the titles are held by the Private Equity Fund Ezten (49.96%) and other shareholders.
Beyond its objectives
The TTT Group, which launched TTT Ejes in 1996, is one of the leading European groups in the heat treatment and coating activity, with a broad presence in the automotive and aeronautical industries. According to sources close to the deal, the company has now chosen to transfer its stake in the capital of TTT Ejes considering that its activity does not fit into the scope of production and that the manufacturing of damper shafts would be beyond its objectives.
TTT Ejes based in Legazpi and Zumarraga (Gipuzkoa) occupies a worldwide leading position in producing shock absorber piston rods for the automotive sector. The company has a staff of about 75 workers and their year-end forecasts for turnover is situated around 13 million euro.
The new controlling shareholder of TTT Ejes has extensive international experience through a specialized industrial structure in the steel, solid waste treatment, agriculture, modular construction, energy, fluid (oil and gas) as well as other industrial sectors.
