Zeppelin acquires MTI Mischtechnik
The portfolio complements the Zeppelin Mixing Technologies division, as the two companies predominantly serve different market segments – both in terms of the focus of the technologies and global coverage. In addition to the portfolio, the know-how of the MTI employees also plays a major role for Zeppelin. Therefore, the former MTI team at the Detmold site is supposed to continue MTI’s future business under new management.
“This is a big step”
According to Zeppelin, the transaction will create a supplier with a global network locally focused on customer needs and driving new technologies. “With this acquisition, we are further expanding our market position in mixing technology. This is a big step that I am very pleased about,” said Rochus Hofmann, Managing Director of Zeppelin Systems. “MTI has great products and an excellent service concept that will benefit us and our customers,” Hofmann added. The portfolio includes heating, cooling and universal mixers for plastics processing and chemical applications.
