Value contribution

  • Simplification of the shareholding and management committee, through the complex agreement on acquisition of the shares of over 40 shareholders, allowing flexibility and streamlining of decision making.
  • Increased market share of Fritta, positioning it as the fifth largest global operator.
  • Development of the line of digital inks and enamels, installing its own production capacity, developing new products and committing to its own design, which has positioned Fritta as an important player in the digital segment.
  • International expansion with development of exports in markets such as the Middle East, India, Vietnam and Mexico. Fritta established a subsidiary in China and strengthened its positioning in Mexico (through inorganic growth) and Vietnam.
  • Optimisation of production costs, increasing efficiency in facilities and production processes.
  • Improvement of reporting and cash management of the company.


In October 2014, Nazca successfully sold Fritta to Investcorp / Esmalglass (leading global operator in the ceramic sector), which showed interest in Fritta due to its strong positioning in enamels, high productivity and good financial development.
