Interpump Group has acquired 100% of Ricci Engineering Srl, a start-up company based in Orvieto, Italy, which designs, builds and installs plants for breweries and winemakers.

The company, which mainly operates in the micro-brewery plant business, has annual sales of around €2 million, with an expected 2018 EBITDA of around 10%. The total price paid was €0.6 million, including an expected financial position of €150 000 in net cash.
