SchäferRolls Takes over Sava-Schäfer
Roll cover manufacturer and roll systems supplier SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG, Renningen, Germany, has expanded its interest in Sava-Schäfer d.o.o., Kranj (Slovenia) from the 50% share it has successfully held since 2001 to 100%. This means that the company now holds all shares formerly held by Slovenian co-partner Sava d.d.
Gregor Azman, managing director of Sava-Schäfer d.o.o. since 2007, will continue to lead the company under the new company name SchäferRolls d.o.o. Michael Schwahn, who is also a managing shareholder of SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG, has been appointed as a further managing director. SchäferRolls d.o.o. has 40 employees, producing rubber and polyurethanebased roll covers in Kranj, Slovenia. Its products are primarily aimed at the Eastern European paper, film, textile, furniture, and metal industries.
The decision to fully acquire the Slovenian company reflects the consistent implementation of the international growth strategy of SchäferRolls. The aim is to achieve the prerequisites for intensifying know-how exchange by means of product specialization and the transfer of standards and experience in production and to consolidate the company’s market position by extending its sales network to tap new market shares in Eastern Europe.
