CEMBRE (STAR): government grants received for a project to expand production capacity


Brescia, 12 January 2023 - Cembre S.p.A. has been awarded government assistance in the form of grants following its submission of a project to expand the production capacity of its “Electrical Connectors” product line.


This project was submitted in response to the call for Development Contracts for Production Chains under Italian Directorial Decree of 25 March 2022, financed by Measure M1C2 Investment 5.2 of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The Italian Ministry of Economic Development published the notice of call, while Invitalia S.p.A., the National Agency for Inward Investment and Economic Development, is the body managing the preliminary procedures.


This expansion of production capacity - driven by the need to meet growing market demand for greater volumes in less time - will entail the construction of two new plants equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and systems, including robotic islands and AI handling systems.


The grants have been assigned for up to €4,919,700 for total investments of €42,048,960. They are non-repayable and will be disbursed over the three-year duration of the project, in proportion to the progress of the investments, with completion scheduled for 2025. The approval of the project was communicated by Invitalia S.p.A. to Cembre S.p.A. on 12 January 2023 and now the signing of the decree approving the grant is awaited.


GFINANCE S.r.l., a Brescia-based consultancy company specialising in subsidised finance, provided technical assistance in the drafting of the project subject to the grant application and handled negotiations with Invitalia S.p.A.
