Coperion: Fusion of Two Group Companies
The Coperion Group, Stuttgart, Germany, will merge its two member companies, Coperion Werner & Pfleiderer GmbH & Co. KG and Coperion Waeschle GmbH & Co. KG into the Coperion GmbH. This decision represents a further logical step in the Group’s implementation of a strategy that began in 2001 with the introduction of the name of Coperion. The management of Coperion GmbH will consist of Günter Bachmann (Chairman), Axel Kiefer, Thomas Kehl and Wolfgang Pöschl.
This clear "single brand strategy" is supposed to enable Coperion’s customers to comprehend the company’s range of products more easily. Following this strategy, the Hartmann and Keya brands will in future be handled under the name of Coperion as well.
The merger of the two companies will be completed by the middle of November 2008. The organized structures of the three Competence Centers will remain in place.
