Bohle AG has taken over the cutting wheel producer Lixon, the negotiations for which took place at this year’s glasstec.

The long-established company from Ransart/Belgium has had a significant influence on the development of glass cutting wheels for flat glass for more than 100 years.

The Clip-S, still widely used today, was one of the company´s product innovations.

The negotiations about the acquisition of all company assets, including machines, customer data, trademark rights, patents and production goods, were conducted at glasstec 2014.

This does not include a succession in title.

The company’s priority now is to guarantee the supply of existing Lixon customers with cutting technology in order to ensure a smooth production flow.

For this purpose, all direct Lixon customers and trade partners will be contacted by Bohle shortly.

"The development and production of cutting wheels is the core of Bohle as a company”, said Vice President Sales, Christoph Schmidt.

“We have been understanding processes and markets for more than 90 years.

“The former Lixon customers will benefit from our long standing experience and performance.”
