Rotork has announced the acquisition of the entire share capital of the operating companies of the Schischek group.
Schischek will become part of Rotork’s Controls division and Schischek managing director Roland Graf will remain in this position.
The acquisition increases Rotork’s existing range of explosion-proof actuators and provides Rotork with exposure to a new end market.
Commenting on the acquisition Rotork chief executive Peter France said: “Schischek is an excellent addition to Rotork’s Controls division. Schischek’s explosion-proof products, which are highly regarded for their quality and reliability, will enhance our range of electric actuators and enlarge our addressable market.”
