“As we welcome Cafro into the Mirka Group, we are really excited about the new opportunities we can create together.

The family owned Cafro S.p.A., based in Como, Italy, is a leading manufacturer of Diamond and CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) wheels as well as PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) and PCBN (Polycrystalline CBN) tools.

Now we can fast-track our growth together with Mirka”, says Cafro’s newly appointed Managing Director Mario Mancina.

The third generation of the Mancina family, owners of Cafro since 1955, will continue to lead the Cafro business within the Mirka Group.

“The acquisition of Cafro is a corner stone in the portfolio we are now building in the area of precision grinding. Mirka’s and Cafro’s customers will see the benefit of a broad and complete offer of surface finishing and grinding solutions” Stefan Sjöberg concludes.
