CEME

With its experience in highly engineered precision fluid control solutions, CEME expanded its customer base in core segments - such as coffee and steam - and also took advantage of high-growth segments in the water treatment market. The company is expected to grow at a high single-digit rate in the next few years due to increased focus on hygiene, environmental concerns around bottled water, excessive water consumption and demand for cheap purified water. CEME's 2021 EBITDA margin was 23.4% with sales almost doubling from 2020-2021, thanks to its R&D efforts and entering into new market niches.

With Investindustrial's support, Benvic aims to maintain its position as a global leader in the compounding industry and improve its product offerings through R&D and expansion. Since its acquisition in 2018, the company has seen a progressive increase in EBITDA margin from 7% in 2017 to 10.3% in 2021.
