With the “2i per l’Impresa” Program , the leading company in the production of machinery for the processing of paper will have access to 1 million euros.
The Gambini loan, issued by Creval Valtellinese, guaranteed by Sace and counter-guaranteed by the European Investment Fund*, aims to support the international growth of the Lucca-based company in the design, construction and installation of machinery for the processing of rolled tissue paper (used for health and hygiene, in private homes and public places).
The transaction is part of the 2i per l’Impresa Program that earmarks Juncker Plan resources to help small-to-medium-sized enterprises innovate and expand internationally.
The financing provides an opportunity for Gambini to invest in research and development, and for the renewal of the machinery and to improve the efficiency of production processes. It will help the Italian company in its preparation to explore new markets in Europe, China and the US, allowing it to expand its business, marked by the realization of advanced, flexible, and high performance technology.
* The transaction is supported by the InnovFin SME Guarantee Facility, with the financial backing of the European Union under Horizon 2020 Financial Instruments and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) set up under the Investment Plan for Europe.
