Italy’s Cavagna Group, manufacturer of equipment and fittings for compressed gases, gas storage and gas control, last November lifted its ownership of Bigas, a Florentian company specialized in the production of fuel system technologies (reducers, injectors, control units) for engines powered by LPG and CNG, from 45% to 100%.
The decision to take over Bigas is coherent with the development strategies of the Cavagna Group, as it is increasingly interested in having more direct involvement in the field of engine conversion to LPG/CNG fuel.
Through its international distribution network in more than 140 countries the Cavagna Group offers products in the field of technologies and systems for the control, regulation and storage of compressed gases. It employs over 900 people worldwide and it is made up of nine vertically integrated production companies in Italy, and nine other companies spread out across five continents.
A synergy exists between the engineering and production divisions at Bigas and those at the Cavagna Group, in terms of both technology and marketing. The Florence-based plant is specialized in designing and manufacturing the entire front kit for converting vehicles with direct or sequential fuel injection systems and naturally aspirated engines.
