Two of the foundry chemical industry’s most traditional and future-focused companies are combining their strengths: With effect from 29 June 2018, the HA Group and the Italian company F.LLI MAZZON S.p.A. are joining forces.
The names HA Group, Satef HA and Mazzon are very well known throughout the foundry industry, and are synonymous with foundry chemical materials close to their customers’ needs. The companies have decided to join forces in order to pursue their shared goal of providing best possible customer satisfaction across Europe and around the world. The transaction represents a significant milestone in the histories of the com-panies.
Mazzon is based in Schio, in the Italian region of Vicenza. Ever since it was founded 55 years ago, the company has been steadily growing, and has also expanded internationally in recent years. In addition to the Italian market, the company now serves customers in several countries around the world. Mazzon is committed to providing cost-optimized products and services tailored to its customers’ needs.
The company thus shares the same fundamental values as the HA Group. Founded more than 100 years ago and headquartered in Düsseldorf, HA Group is a leading global supplier of foundry chemical products. Almost 2,000 dedicated employees in over 30 countries develop and produce foundry chemical solutions for all established core and mould-making processes for customers worldwide.
In Italy, the HA Group is represented by Satef HA, based in Vicenza, where the production of resins, coatings, refractory products and the storage of trading products is situated.
“For Satef HA the transaction with Mazzon means an important step in enforcing our footprint in the Italian market”, says Andrea Todeschini, Managing Director of Satef HA. “It enables us to further enhance our service and to offer a full range of chemical products to our foundry customers.”
Amedeo Mazzon, CEO of Mazzon, adds “we are proud to become part of the HA family. This gives us the opportunity to continue our success story as part of the leading in-ternational foundry chemicals group”.
Dr. Carsten Kuhlgatz and Christoph Koch, Presidents of HA Group, state: “This partner-ship marks another important milestone for HA’s global growth strategy. It brings together two strong partners, Mazzon and HA, both of whom are renowned for their technological competence and customer-focused products. By uniting our companies we will continue to strive for customer satisfaction and remain the preferred supplier of chemical products to the global foundry industry”.
In combination with Mazzon, the HA Group offers the most comprehensive product portfolio in the field of foundry chemistry to meet customers’ specific requirements: organic binder systems for all core-making processes, inorganic binder systems, coatings, feeder technology, additives, metallurgical products, resin-coated sands, special sands and a wide range of auxiliary materials. With a sophisticated range of products and services and intense on-site foundry support, the company’s highly qualified foundry specialists support customers in developing tailor-made solutions for every foundry application and optimizing their processes.
