Kaltenbach acquires Dutch shotblasting and painting firm

Posted on by in News

Machinery manufacturer Kaltenbach has acquired through an asset deal, the production facility and brand of Gietart, the shotblasting and painting systems company based in Hengelo, the Netherlands.

Kaltenbach said the investment extends its capability as a systems provider for the processing of structural steel sections and plate, through direct control and supply of the brand leading range of Gietart.

Valentin Kaltenbach, Managing Director of the new company and Chief Executive Officer of the Kaltenbach Group, said: “We have formed a 100% daughter company trading as Kaltenbach Shotblast and Painting Systems, which became operational in November. There is a proven synergy between Kaltenbach and Gietart technologies, having been independently and successfully integrated for many years within installations worldwide.”

Simon Smith, Managing Director of Kaltenbach UK, said: “This excellent opportunity will enable our customers to continue to benefit from Gietart products, with seamless ongoing sales, spares and service support.”
