Austrian flat glass processing group Lisec has acquired Glastronic, a part of the Jüllich Group.
Via the newly acquired company Lisec will exclusively purchase used Lisec machines, overhaul them according to the customers’ requirements and resell them. The Hungarian company will keep its name Glastronic but with the suffix ‘Member of the Lisec Group’.
Dr. Anita Panowitz, who will manage the new company together with Bernhard Scheidl, said: ”For us, it was important to transact the business with used machinery via an independent group. On the one hand we are thus able to be very fast and, on the other hand, the cost structure remains lean.“
In the future Glastronic will acquire used Lisec machines, overhaul them according to the customers’ requirements and resell them. The company will also cover the installation and the service of used machines and will ensure the availability of spare parts.
The contract was concluded on September 1st. All 29 Glastronc staff were included in the deal.
Bernhard Scheidl, who will manage the purchasing, sales and engineering, said: “Worldwide, Lisec has a large installed basis of plants and machines – the potential is therefore enormous.
"We will now proactively address the purchase and sale of used machines and we are glad to have found a partner with Glastronic who is experienced in machines for the processing and machining of flat glass.
“The Glastronic employees are well-acquainted with Lisec plants. The company was established in 2000 and many of our employees have been with the company right from the beginning.”
