Mirka acquires URMA Rolls

Mirka has acquired superabrasive dressing rolls manufacturer URMA Rolls.

Based in the Italian city of Turin, URMA Rolls is a leading manufacturer of diamond dressing rolls and CBN wheels.

It also typically manufactures bearings, precision parts, engine parts and aerospace components.

It is the Mirka Group company Cafro S.p.A. that has acquired 100 per cent of the shares of URMA Rolls.

Mirka says the acquisition is an integral part of its strategy to expand the business in the field of superabrasives and grinding solutions.

“The acquisition of URMA Rolls is a perfect match in the portfolio we are now building in precision grinding,” says Mario Mancina, Cafro MD.

“Mirka’s and Cafro’s customers will see the benefit of a broad and complete offer of surface finishing and grinding solutions.”

Mirka CEO, Stefan Sjöberg adds: “There is an excellent match between URMA Rolls’ and Cafro’s specialised knowledge and manufacturing capabilities, and Mirka’s global market presence.

“We are also currently working on expanding the portfolio into conventional ceramic grinding wheels to complete the portfolio.”
