Greater Market Penetration
On January 9, 2018 Ettlinger Kunststoffmaschinen GmbH announced that they have been acquired by the Swiss Company Maag Pump & Filtration Systems, a business unit of Dover Corporation.
Ettlinger was founded in 1983 and is today a globally recognized brand. The German company has its headquarters in Königsbrunn, near Augsburg, Germany, and an American sales and service subsidiary in Atlanta, Georgia. Its core expertise is the development and manufacture of high performance continuous melt filters and injection molding machines. Ettlinger melt filters are used for processing heavily contaminated material streams as well as extrusion applications where pressure stable filtration is desired.
Switzerland-based Maag Pump & Filtration Systems is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of gear pumps, pelletizing systems, and filtration systems for demanding applications in the plastics, chemical, and petrochemical industries. Maag and Ettlinger with their combined expertise, innovative products and advanced technologies will leverage the polymer, compounding and recycling industry. Ettlinger will benefit from Maag’s global network and will be able to strengthen its worldwide service and support.
Both companies will go to the market under their existing brand names. Ueli Thuerig, President of Maag, will head the combined business.
