The Vignal group has decided to strengthen its plastic injection tooling manufacturing center based within the Vignal CEA company in Rancate (Switzerland).
On March 1, 2021, Vignal CEA acquired all the assets of BBL. This Italian company, founded in 1962, is currently managed by Giorgio Bombelli who will therefore join the group.
BBL has a long experience in the manufacturing of optics for vehicle headlamps.
Jean-Louis Coutin, President of Vignal Group, declared:
"Vignal continues to develop its growth strategy through targeted acquisitions to strengthen its position in technological businesses and / or acquire new product lines. Thus, by integrating these companies, Vignal wishes to develop synergies to offer more products and services to all of its customers. "
Michele Bellù, President of Vignal CEA, declared:
"The integration of BBL into Vignal CEA will strengthen our expertise in the design and manufacture of complex and innovative tooling.
The thirty years of experience acquired by Giorgio and his team in the creation of specific optics for the automotive sector fits perfectly with the mission of the Vignal group for the world of lighting. "
