voestalpine subsidiary NEDCON, headquartered in Doetinchem, the Netherlands, and part of the international steel and technology Group’s Metal Forming Division since 2004, has been a supplier of innovative storage solutions for decades. With the acquisition of warehouse and racking specialist Torri S.P.A. from Vicenza, Italy, the company is now further strengthening its position in this demanding segment.

With annual revenue of around EUR 75 million and 135 employees, Torri S.P.A. has been developing, producing and assembling high-quality racking systems and storage platforms for a wide range of industrial applications for over 50 years. The product portfolio includes both manual and automatic storage systems, as well as tailor-made solutions designed to meet specific customer needs. 

Peter Schwab

Torri S.P.A.’s extensive and long-standing expertise in the field of racking solutions ideally complements the the NEDCON Group’s existing product and service offering. This acquisition allows us to vigorously pursue our strategy of offering complex storage systems from a single source, from initial development right through to final assembly. Not only does it enable us to serve the Southern European market even better, we can also create more added value for our existing customers.
