CIN and Boero – a new alliance in the coatings industry
The relationship between the two companies began a few years ago when CIN acquired a small stock market stake in Boero. Recently, the Portuguese company increased the stake to 13 %, reinforcing a relationship which originated a number of successful joint projects through the years.
With the new transaction, CIN achieves a dominant position in Boero while the Boero family still holds a significant stake in the company. Boero ended 2020 with a turnover of EUR 90 million, while CIN reached EUR 234 million, an alliance which surpasses EUR 320 million and allows a significant higher position on the Top 25 ranking of Europe’s largest coatings manufacturers, where CIN is already listed.
