Dorner Holding Corp., the parent company of Dorner Mfg. Corp., has announced the acquisition of Jülich, Germany-based Geppert-Band, a leading European manufacturer of belt and modular belt conveyors.
Dorner Mfg. Corp. is an industry leader in the design, applications, manufacturing and integration of precision industrial and sanitary conveyor systems. The addition of Geppert-Band expands Dorner Holding Corp.’s geographic coverage and continues its strategy of international expansion. In late 2015, Dorner opened an office in Burlington, ON, Canada and acquired Penang, Malaysia-based, FlexMove; a manufacturer of flexible chain conveyors.
“As we continue to see growth internationally the addition of Geppert-Band allows us to better serve the European market,” said Terry Schadeberg, president and CEO, Dorner Mfg. Corp. “Its product offering and capabilities complement our existing strategy, and we’re pleased to welcome them to the Dorner family.”
“We share a lot of similar core values, including a commitment to providing fast deliveries and quality customer service,” said Thomas Blesinger, president, Geppert-Band. “Dorner has a strong reputation in the conveyor market and we’re looking forward to providing our customers with an even wider variety of solutions.”
