Kiefel acquires a specialist of thermoforming tools

Kiefel GmbH Freilassing, Germany intends to acquire a 100% share in Bosch Sprang B.V. located in Sprang-Capelle in the Netherlands. Both parties signed a purchase

agreement last week, which is among others still subject to the approval of the cartel authorities.


The main focus of Bosch Sprang, a specialist in the field of thermoforming
technology, lies in the development and manufacture of tilting moulds for use
in the production of plastic cups; an area in which the company is a world
leader. Its team of some 100 employees has made a considerable contribution
to the current state of technology.

Bosch Sprang is a worldwide established supplier to producers of
thermoformed rigid packaging parts.
This takeover marks a further step in the growth strategy of the Brückner
Group, which is designed to strengthen the position of its existing members by
extending the range of products and services available.

The company management of Bosch Sprang will be in the hands of the
existing CEO Rob Smeulders and of Thorsten Emge, who is presently the
Head of Central Engineering at Kiefel GmbH.
