German firm, OFRU Recycling GmbH & Co. KG, which manufactures solvent recycling systems for the recovery of contaminated solvents, has acquired Swiss company, Tecos Bruhin AG and its product line cleaning technologies.
Headquartered in Altnau, Switzerland, Tecos adds cleaning and washing technology to OFRU's solvent recycling product line offering. It is one of the main manufacturers of dispensing and cleaning systems, with a core product offering including cleaning systems for containers in the paint, coating, printing ink and the sealants and adhesives industries.
Since entering the market, Tecos has built up an exclusive customer base. Customers are said to appreciate the impeccably clean containers, as these are the prerequisite for their flawless production.
"This is an important strategic step for OFRU," said Denis Kargol, Managing Director of OFRU. "By adding Tecos' expertise, products and capabilities, we are one of the few manufacturers to offer both solvent recycling equipment and complete solutions for cleaning and washing industrial containers for customers worldwide."
"This acquisition will fuel OFRU's global expansion. The new product lines offer OFRU an exciting opportunity to build a stronger, more sustainable global advantage in the integration of cleaning systems," added Kargol.
"In the second quarter of 2020, we will manufacture the cleaning systems previously built by Tecos in Alzenau/Germany," he concluded.
