Fincantieri Acquires Control of Support Logistic Services

Fincantieri Yard

Fincantieri subsidiary INSIS acquired a majority share in Support Logistic Services (SLS), a company based in Guidonia Montecelio specialized in the production, installation and maintenance of radar, satellite and radio communications systems for military and civil applications, according to a press release.

Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, commented: “This operation fits into our far-reaching strategy to consolidate and safeguard a supply chain made up of small and medium-sized enterprises. A dedicated corporate division will coordinate the various companies, which will continue to operate independently according to their intrinsic business approaches. This will allow them to retain key resources, expanding the pool of expertise of our Group”.

Fincantieri said the operation falls within the group’s strategy to strengthen its competence in high-technology activities.

As such, it is consistent with the development plan conceived for the newborn Electronics, Systems & Software Division to foster and improve innovation, its main competitive strength. 

 SLS is renowned for its products and solutions’ quality, as well as for the high level of service it is able to guarantee. These distinguishing features have allowed the company to create and maintain a sound client portfolio in a complex and fragmented market. With 2019 revenues amounting to about 9 million euros, expected to further increase this year, almost half of the company’s 35 employees are engineers, systems analysts, design engineers and qualified technicians.

In recent years, Fincantieri has undertaken several actions to diversify and expand its product and service portfolio, steering it towards higher added-value solutions, the company said.
