Originally, Yves Clarino und Yves Corbex established Clarino Corbex Numérique to provide CNC-machined metal parts. When the automotive industry introduced turbo charging to increase the performance of car engines, they changed the company’s focus: CCN became a manufacturer of precision parts for turbo chargers, increased vertical integration and began component assembly. Starting in 2004, the firm built an international production network in parallel to broadening its product range - facilities in France, Slovakia and Mexico support clients in key regions. Clients include market leaders Honeywell, Borg Warner and IHI to who CCN is a tier 1 supplier.
In 2011, Halder’s MBO marked a change of the guard: Yves Corbex had sold his shares to a private equity investor in 2004, and after taking a new manager on board in 2005 to become his successor, Yves Clarino was ready to retire. Through the MBO, the management team acquired 6% of CCN’s shares while Halder took the majority stake.
Having weathered the recession of 2008/09 with structures intact, CCN is set on expanding: In the years to come, turbo charging technology will increasingly be used to reduce fuel consumption and emissions of car engines. With much stricter regulation, demand for turbo chargers is expected to increase substantially until 2017. Based on a strong market position, CCN can exploit this potential to continue growing.
