Together at the handover ceremony in Veduggio, the headquarters of the Formenti e Giovenzana Group: representatives of the FGV and Hettich management team with Dr. Andreas Hettich and the former shareholders of Formenti e Giovenzana and their families.



The eagerly awaited acquisition of FGV Group by Hettich Group, announced in early September, has now reached its successful conclusion, marking the formal completion of the takeover. In addition to the necessary approvals from the antitrust authorities, all other closing conditions for the takeover have been met. FGV and Hettich are now shaping their future together in the furniture fittings industry.
Both companies are characterized by their long-term vision, expertise in furniture fittings, presence in the same industry, and close relationships with their customers.
"We are two family businesses with a combined experience of more than 200 years," says Jana Schönfeld, managing director of the Hettich Group. "And together we are now more than 9,000 colleagues all over the world who use all their energy, passion and ideas to bring about the best for our customers every day. These similarities have inspired us and convinced us to want to shape our future together."
"Hettich and FGV will complement each other with their strengths in order to continuously develop existing business activities and offer their customers even better value-added solutions," says Dr. Andreas Hettich, shareholder and chairman of the Advisory Board of the Hettich Group, which is now a 100% shareholder in the FGV Group. Within the overall Hettich Group, Hettich and FGV will remain independent brands and companies. Customers of both companies will retain their familiar contacts.
Continuously developing together and being there reliably for the customers of Hettich and FGV is also of particular importance to Uwe Kreidel. FGV's accomplished management team will be joined in future by Uwe Kreidel as CEO. In addition to his more than 30 years of industry, Hettich and management experience, he contributes his knowledge of the Italian market, acquired among other things in his function as Regional Director for Hettich Italia.
