Majority of Künzel Maschinenbau GmbH shares acquired
Ziemann Holvrieka gains strength with raw material handling experts
Ziemann Holvrieka has expanded its capabilities for providing complete brewery solutions with the acquisition of Künzel Maschinenbau in Mainleus, Germany. Künzel is a leading manufacturer particularly known for its expertise in malt handling and grist mills, which are crucial components for breweries. Künzel has been a major player in the raw material handling sector since 1922.
This acquisition reflects Ziemann Holvrieka’s strong commitment to excellence in the brewery equipment industry. Künzel’s specialization in the upstream phase of brewing process aligns perfectly with our existing product portfolio. It enables us to enhance our range of products and turnkey solutions. Furthermore, we will harness Künzel’s expertise within our group of companies, including Ziemann Holvrieka, to explore new opportunities for Künzel in other sectors.
The site in Mainleus will continue to operate as it always has, with the same management team, with the same dedication to all its customers and with their committed employees. Künzel will retain its company name, brands, and organizational culture.
“We firmly believe that our group will gain from Künzel’s remarkable expertise. While Künzel will benefit from our global presence and research and development capabilities. We are eagerly anticipating a successful and close collaboration with the management team and all employees,” affirmed Klaus Gehrig, CEO of Ziemann Holvrieka GmbH.
“The priority of all our activities was, is and will be unconditional customer satisfaction. Künzel has always distinguished itself through excellent customer service and long-standing customer relationships, and this value will remain anchored in our corporate culture in the future.
This acquisition and the associated close collaboration with Ziemann gives us the possibility to combine our strengths and create synergies that allow us to expand into new markets as well as developing our product and service portfolio – for the benefit of all our current and future customers,” states Clemens Thüsing, Managing Director of Künzel Maschinenbau GmbH.
