Quoting Kiefel CEO Thomas J. Halletz: "This deal does not just bring together two of the technology and market world leaders but also two teams with an absolutely customer-centred approach and an eye to the future. The range of services supplied by Bosch Sprang also perfectly matches Kiefel's portfolio as a manufacturer of thermoforming machines, while enhancing our ability to serve the highly demanding tooling needs of the premium segment.”
Bosch Sprang management will continue their work for Bosch Sprang.
