Dürr’s acquisitions expand paint application technology range

04 September 2014

Dürr has expanded its range in paint application technology through two new acquisitions. At the end of June, the Group took over the German company Bersch & Fratscher GmbH (Befrag) from Karlstein/Main, as well as the Czech company EST+ a.s. from Ledeč nad Sázavou near Prague. The two companies generate sales revenues totalling almost €10M (2013). Befrag employs 70 staff, while EST+ has a workforce of 60.

The two companies offer automated application systems, spray guns for manual paint application, as well as smaller paint and drying systems. Ralf W Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG said: "We will systematically expand the activities of the two companies under the umbrella of the Dürr Group. The new Czech site provides a good basis for the expansion of our business in Eastern Europe, and with Befrag we have gained another efficient site.”
