LCI Industries announced that its subsidiary, LCI Italy S.r.l., has acquired Ciesse S.p.A., a supplier of railway interior products and systems, headquartered in Rignano sull’Arno, Italy, effective Aug. 31.
According to a press release, LCI acquired Varese, Italy-based manufacturer Sessa Klein S.p.A. in 2017, expanding the company’s operational capabilities to include side window systems for both high speed and commuter rail. Ciesse’s expansive railway interior products and systems further expands LCI’s complete railway solutions division and will serve to create greater synergies among rail customers.
“The addition of Ciesse’s products, leadership, and customer base allows us to continue our growth and pursuit of obtaining a more complete suite of components and solutions for the global rail industries,” said Jason Lippert, CEO and president of LCI. “As the overseas rail market is beginning to see some real growth, we are enthusiastic about further evolving our railway product offerings and market share in that market. We look forward to the Ciesse leadership team’s continued service of existing customers and collaboration with our U.S.-based leadership teams to find new opportunities in the international railway market.”
