SAT and Gema Press Release

January 25th 2023


Dear valued customers and partners,

This month we celebrate the 5 years anniversary of the acquisition of SAT (Surface Aluminum Technologies) SRL by Gema Switzerland GmbH.

The acquisition (finalized in January 2018) represented a very important development for SAT and Gema, for customers and for all the finishing market. Gema and SAT, after being strong business partners for many years, decided to join forces in order to offer both great experience and local assistance to all aluminium industry customers. On one side, SAT has developed a broad portfolio of very innovative solutions for powder coating and anodizing of aluminum extrusions, which provide great productivity and long lasting value to customers; on the other side, Gema  manufactures the most advanced electrostatic powder coating equipment on the market with a broad distribution and support network all over the world.

“Overall, I am very pleased with the results of the acquisition; the performance in these first 5 years, even considering the disruption of COVID pandemic, has been simply outstanding. Not only SAT smoothly joined the organization and culture of GEMA, but we worked together in new initiatives and projects that are going to make our group even stronger in the future.” said Claudio Merengo, President Worldwide of Gema.

Andrea Trevisan, SAT CEO, commented: “These first 5 years have been full of satisfactions and we are grateful to GRACO and Gema for their precious support. Our goal is now to use this solid base we built to expand our business and to keep providing our customers with the best technologies.”
