The Quick Group continues to expand and announces the acquisition of Italian electronic systems brand XENTA, founded in Rome in 2004. For the Piangipane-based company, this is the second major acquisition in the space of a few months, following that of the Italian brand
Sanguineti Chiavari
, a manufacturer best known for its deck equipment.

Under the deal signed between the parties, Quick Group, in which Fondo Italiano d’Investimento SGR, Armònia SGR and the Marzucco family have an interest, acquires 100 percent of XENTA Systems S.r.l. Thus, a major brand specializing in the development and production of integrated steering systems for yachts and superyachts joins the Quick galaxy.

What XENTA produces

Founded almost two decades ago, in 2004, XENTA has over the years become one of the leading companies in the development of software for the control of maneuvering and navigation aboard vessels. The brand’s products range from electronic systems of diesel, electric and hybrid propulsion control, the systems of electronic steering with electrohydraulic actuation, the maneuvering systems including assisted, position-keeping systems, stability control systems, and those for remote control. The Roman company has developed important relationships with several international shipyards over the years, acquiring the skills to work on different types of propulsion (from shaft line to watetjet, via surface drive) even with complex solutions. Certainly, this operation becomes strategic with a view to increasingly functional integration of all the different devices in the vessel, both at the commercial level and at the level of end-user use.

XENTA’s two partners Stefano Bertazzoni and Lorenzo Mongiardo will not leave the company; on the contrary, they will be involved with an investment within the Quick Group, thus ensuring management continuity even in this new phase. Both managers said they were very optimistic about the development of the Group’s near future, confident that by sharing development and future plans, mutually beneficial integrations and synergies can only arise. Indeed, the focus of development will be on the“integrated control system” concept that XENTA has been pursuing for the past few years, and which may find full fruition with its entry into Quick as it continues with its expansion and consolidation operation.
