Effective February 21, 2019, KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH, Munich, Germany, signed a share purchase agreement with Pultrex Ltd., based in Manningtree, Essex/UK, and according to the company thus strengthens its system competence in the area of pultrusion. Pultrex is one of the leading providers of pultrusion, pullwinding and filament winding systems, and is itself a manufacturer of pultrusion profiles.

Experience in Pultrusion

"With the company Pultrex, we have a valuable, experienced partner at our side, with whom we will expand our pultrusion business division for the long term", says Nicolas Beyl, President of the Reaction Process Machinery Segment KraussMaffei Group.

Pultrex has over 40 years of experience in the field of pultrusion, the continuous strand drawing of fiber-reinforced profiles and round rods. More than 600 Pultrex pultrusion systems are in use worldwide. The product portfolio includes complete pultrusion, pullwinding and filament winding systems. In addition, Pultrex manufactures profiles for numerous customers, for example in the construction, transport and wind power industries.

"Our partnership with the globally active technology leader KraussMaffei, in particular the worldwide sales and service network, will be of great benefit to all our customers", says Colin Leek, Managing Director Pultrex

The Entire Value Chain

KraussMaffei entered the pultrusion market in 2017, setting new standards with the iPul system. According to the company, its core competences include the expertise and experience with mixing and metering systems, as well as mold technology. With the expertise and experience of Pultrex, KraussMaffei is complementing his system competence and offers the entire value chain from a single supplier At the same time, both parties will together pursue the aim of promoting standardized pultrusion system construction, thus offering their customers solutions with price-performance ratios.

Technical Centers Bundle Know-How

The Manningtree location of Pultrex will be the KraussMaffei Competence Center for the construction of pullers, filament winding and pullwinding systems. At the same time, Pultrex expertise and experience will be used in the design of resin-impregnating bath systems for pultrusion.

Profile production in Manningtree will continue on the same scale. This will result in the advantage that customers will be able to test their prototypes and the respective series production on location and take the experience and knowledge gained into account in their development work.

The metering machines for the iPul systems come from Munich, the molds from the KraussMaffei location Harderberg in Germany. According to the company, it is thus concentrating the pultrusion system know-how specifically at the locations which already have the competence.
