Eisenmann and Ruhstrat merge to form new industrial furnaces company
September 7, 2015
Eisenmann SE has announced that its business unit for process and high temperature technology will merge with Ruhstrat GmbH & Co. KG to create Eisenmann Thermal Solutions GmbH & Co. KG. The new organisation will be headquartered in Bovenden, Germany, although the Böblingen site will continue to operate.
Eisenmann began a sales partnership with Ruhstrat GmbH several years before acquiring the company in 2011. “This move will allow us to collaborate more closely than ever, particularly in our industrial furnaces business,” stated André Görnhardt, Managing Director of Eisenmann Thermal Solutions.
“By pooling the expertise that our teams have gained in thermal process technology over the last few decades, we will be better placed to effectively meet growing demand for global solutions, and to address the challenge of more complex processes,” added Görnhardt.
The Ruhstrat and Eisenmann teams will undertake joint R&D projects in the areas of lightweight materials and carbon fibre, high-performance metals, technical ceramics, powder chemicals, catalysts and new materials. Moreover, the teams will consolidate and expand their marketing and engineering activities.
A range of electrical technologies under the brand name of Ruhstrat will complement and enhance the existing Eisenmann product portfolio. Eisenmann stated that the new organisation will be well equipped to react to changing market conditions with greater speed and flexibility, and to tailor products and processes to continuously evolving customer needs.
