Jun 15, 2019

K&L Gates and Giovannelli e Associati advised on the deal. Quantum Capital Partners announced that Gianetti Ruote Holding GmbH, a company owned by the Quantum Opportunity Fund II GmbH & Co. KG, acquired 100% of the shares of GKN Wheels Carpenedolo S.p.A. from GKN Wheels Group. The company has been renamed to FAD Wheels S.r.l.. Through this strategic move, the Quantum Group will strengthen its position as an important steel wheel manufacturer for both commercial as well as agriculture, construction and industrial vehicles as well as forklift trucks in the European market.

The new Gianetti Group will have a total capacity of over 2,000,000 wheels p.a. across two Italian plants located in Carpenedolo (Brescia) and Ceriano Laghetto (Monza and Brianza). Headquartered near Brescia (Italy), FAD Wheels is a leading producer of high-quality steel wheels (8″ to 34″ in diameter) for agriculture and construction vehicles, forklift trucks and caravans. Supplying Europe’s leading commercial vehicle OEMs and resellers, the company can look back on a corporate history of over 65 years. The strategic acquisition of FAD Wheels strengthens the group’s market position and expands its production capacities as well as the technical and operational know-how in the field of agriculture and forklift wheels. K&L Gates advised Quantum Capital Partners on the deal with a team led by partner Pasquale Marini (Picture), assisted by senior associate Francesco Peruffo and associate Serena Germani (all Corporate M&A) and partner Roberto Podda (Employment).
