Italy's leading company in waste collection solutions enters the street sweeper market through a partnership with BSA, a new company with strong expertise in this segment


Busi Group - a leading Italian company in complete solutions for the collection, compaction and transport of waste - enters the road sweeping sector with the acquisition of shares in the newco BSA Sweeping Equipment S.r.l, a newly established company founded by professionals with strong expertise in the urban hygiene sector.

The objective is to reach a total turnover of €30 million in the five-year period, becoming a key player in the national market and, progressively from 2024, to enter international markets thanks to the production of reliable and durable vehicles, highly customised to customers' needs.

The growth targets are ambitious but possible: the Brescia-based Busigroup is already a leader in the urban waste collection and compaction sector thanks to the OMB Technology brand, which since 1961 has specialised in the production and fitting out of solutions and vehicles for street collection (waste collection vehicles with lateral, rear and door-to-door loading systems with satellite vehicles and stationary bins of various types) supplied to the main companies involved in waste collection in Italy and around the world, such as A2a, Hera, Iren, AMA and many others. The newco BSA Sweeping Equipment, on the other hand, can count on the expertise of the founding partners, who boast decades of experience in the street sweeping sector with a past in leading companies in the market.

The range of BSA Sweeping Equipment solutions starts with a series of truck-mounted sweeping machine variants from 6m3 to 8m3 and will gradually be expanded with tailor-made products tailored to specific customer requirements.

BSA's order intake is already promising, having reached €4 million in just a few months, with clear and positive repercussions on employment levels (in the first year BSA will employ 15 people). The partnership with the Busi Group will allow it to act as a leader on the domestic market thanks to a capillary coverage of the territory, both in terms of customer coverage and the ability to service the fleet of vehicles, taking advantage of the Busi Group's numerous service centres.

"Entering the street sweeping segment with BSA represents a natural completion of our urban hygiene offer and we are confident that they will be high quality products as ours are," comment the Busi brothers. "The market for street sweepers is competitive, but thanks to our strong experience and the strength of the Busi group, we are confident that we will be able to achieve excellent results already in the short term," concluded Roberto Meneghinello, President of BSA Sweeping Equipment.

The agreement between the two companies was promoted by the development holding Strategenia S.r.l., which specialises in identifying growth opportunities and investments in the real economy.
