Bühler acquires Italian Brescia Presse S.r.l.
Die Casting business unit
adds to its range of services

 
The Bühler Technology Group has announced the acquisition of the Revisions and Retrofits business of the Italian company Brescia Presse S.r.l.

This opens up additional business opportunities to the company in the form of reconditioning and retrofitting die casting machines and systems.
International reputation
Brescia Presse S.r.l., with which the Bühler Die Casting business unit has collaborated closely since 2005, is headquartered in the northern Italian city of Brescia. The company enjoys an outstanding reputation far beyond Italy for its high quality in reconditioning die casting machines. Brescia Presse S.r.l. has some 30 employees and generates annual sales (turnover) of about EUR 3.5 million. All em-ployees of the Business Unit will be retained by Bühler. The company will be headed by the existing managing director, and the senior positions will be occupied by the team that has existed up to now.

Competent and complete support from a single source
With this acquisition, Uzwil-based Bühler Group is adding the reconditioning of die casting machines and systems to its range of services. The emphasis will be on overhauling Bühler die casting machines of all types and sizes, without however excluding non-Bühler machines. Geographically speaking, the focus will be on Europe. The benefit for our customers is that they now have one single source offering complete and competent support in every respect.
