BBB Acquires Spain’s Fare, Italy’s Redline Auto Parts

The transactions encompass the entirety of the businesses.

BBB Industries announced today that it has acquired the equity interests of Spanish company FARE SA and Italian company B.B.F. SRL, more commonly known as Fare and Redline Auto Parts, respectively.

The transactions encompass the entirety of the businesses.

Fare brings 35 years of experience to the automotive aftermarket, delivering some 12,000 catalogued part numbers in the rubber, metal and rubber-to-metal product segments.

Redline brings 40 years of experience to the automotive aftermarket, delivering some 17,000 catalogued part numbers primarily for Asian and American cars in Europe.

“Over a year ago, BBB announced our entrance into Europe with the acquisition of Metalcaucho,” said John Boyer, BBB’s president – New Ventures. “We are delighted to add both Fare and Redline’s technical expertise and proven abilities to deliver differentiated, high-quality products which complements both BBB and Metalcaucho. The Fare and Redline brands have a rich history, and I am excited about these opportunities to bring added value to our existing and new customer relationships.”

“We’ve known the Fare and Redline management teams for many years and are confident that each addition to the BBB Europe portfolio is a natural fit across countries and continents,” said Josep Grañó, managing director of Metalcaucho. “The combined enterprise is well-positioned for continued growth as a leading, diversified supplier to the automotive aftermarket.”

BBB Industries is a Daphne, Alabama-based remanufacturer of starters, alternators, hydraulic and air disc-brake calipers and hydraulic and electronic power-steering products and turbochargers for the OEM, passenger and commercial-vehicle aftermarkets.

“To join a leading aftermarket company like BBB affirms our past success and promises future opportunities to better serve and delight our customers,” said Ruben Foixench, Fare’s general manager. Salvatore Bordonaro, Redline’s general manager, added: “We are very proud of Redline’s achievements over the decades. Now, we are excited to become a part of BBB and leverage its vast resources, talent and industry knowledge to continue innovating and growing in our existing, and now greatly expanded, markets.”
