Hydro acquires powder coating company MBG
Hydro has acquired MBG Metallbeschichtung Gerstungen GmbH (MBG). The acquisition strengthens Hydro’s portfolio in the building systems sector.
MBG is a specialist powder-coating company that was founded in 1998 in Gerstungen, where it has been based ever since; it is located in the immediate vicinity of Hydro’s logistics centre. MBG employs around 100 people and has been an important powder-coating partner of Hydro Building Systems for more than 20 years. “This acquisition supports Hydro’s strategy to further expand and integrate its logistics centre for the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) in order to offer our customers an even greater variety of products and excellent service,” says Ralf Seufert, vice president of Hydro Building Systems. “We are very pleased to have acquired the competence and expertise of this specialised company.”
With this acquisition, Hydro will complement its aluminium building systems business in the DACH region with additional, integrated services in the field of surface treatment.
MBG’s business activities and its cooperation with its employees, customers and suppliers will remain unchanged. Hydro Building Systems intends to continue its business relationships with its other surface-treatment partners in the future.
