Zeppelin Systems takes over the owner-managed MTI Mischtechnik, whose shares were up for sale in October 2020 following insolvency proceedings.
The portfolio ideally 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 will continue MTI’s future business under new management.
With the acquisition of MTI, Zeppelin Systems integrates both teams under one management and guarantees not only the continuation of a brand, but also a smooth ongoing of business operations at the Detmold site. A team from the areas of construction, sales, service and IT will continue to look after customers and ensure that they have access to both – the usual service in the new machine business and the supply of spare parts.
“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.”
The portfolio includes heating, cooling and universal mixers for plastics processing and chemical applications.
“Since the mixer solutions from MTI and Zeppelin are largely used in different industries, the overlap of the portfolio is small,” Hofmann said.
