ElringKlinger Acquires Tool- and Die-Making Specialist
ElringKlinger AG has taken over the business operations of the insolvent tool- and die-making company Maier Formenbau GmbH, based in Bissingen/Teck, Germany. In this context, ElringKlinger acquired, effective from June 1, 2016, all assets of Maier Formenbau GmbH required for the continuation of business operations (asset deal).
In taking over the business operations, ElringKlinger has further strengthened its current expertise and capacity levels in the area of tool- and die-making. "Following the acquisition of Hummel-Formen GmbH in 2011, this latest takeover is to be seen as the next logical step. It adds to our skillset in the best possible way and allows us to stand our ground as a technology leader in the field of tool- and die-making," says Jürgen Weingärtner, who as Head of Technical Service is responsible for tool- and die-making within the ElringKlinger Group. The additional resources are to be used primarily for the purpose of developing and producing tools and dies in the Shielding Technology division.
Maier Formenbau GmbH specializes in the manufacture and repair of technically complex injection-molding tools. The company employs 42 people and generated revenue of EUR 6 million in the 2015 financial year.
