Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co KG Maschinenfabrik has taken over Kiefel Extrusion GmbH engaged in the blown film extrusion lines business. With its now completed divestment, Brückner is concentrating its Kiefel corporate division on Kiefel GmbH's thermoforming and welding machines. "In this field of technology with its product areas packaging, medical and automobile technology we see major growth potentials; we are going to increasingly tap into these in the context of our corporate strategy", explains Peter Wellenhofer, chairman of the management board of Brückner Technology Holding GmbH.
Brückner is continuing to pursue an expansive corporate strategy. "On the basis of our strong technological position in the sector of plastics processing machinery and in plant construction as well as in growth markets, primarily in Asia, our objective is to grow and further develop the Brückner Group through targeted strategic acquisitions", explains Maximilian Schneider, managing director of Brückner Technology Holding GmbH. "We specifically see the next one to two years as a favourable period for this objective".
