Zeppelin Systems expands plant engineering expertise with acquisition

German plant engineering company Zeppelin Systems is continuing on its growth course by acquiring the majority of shares in Magdalena Kitzmann GmbH, effective January 1, 2022. Zeppelin Systems says it is, thus, further expanding its expertise in the field of performance materials and ensuring its customers comprehensive support in this market segment from a partner with many years of expertise.

With a broadly based portfolio, Zeppelin Systems serves not only a wide range of market segments but first and foremost, diverse customer groups with its expertise in plant engineering. The company has a reputation as an expert in the handling of solid as well as liquid raw materials and primarily covers the process steps of storing, conveying, weighing, dosing and mixing in various industries.

"Our broad portfolio offers our customers security for long-term investments. With the majority shareholding in Kitzmann, we have secured in-depth expert knowledge, especially in the field of performance materials, and can offer our customers even better plant concepts," explains Rochus Hofmann, Managing Director of Zeppelin Systems.

The owner-managed Magdalena Kitzmann GmbH company optimally complements the portfolio of the plant manufacturer not only through its correspondingly high-quality standards, but above all by providing optimal support to the PVC and chemical applications market segments through the new partnership, says Zeppelin.

As a specialist for customised and process-safe complete plants, Kitzmann has a whole range of services including engineering through to commissioning of individual components as well as manufacturing turnkey plants for liquid or solid handling. Companies from the plastics industry, the chemical industry and the food industry regularly benefit from the individual process engineering plants - made in Germany.

Originally a handicraft business, Kitzmann has developed into a plant manufacturer through continuous growth in the years following its foundation and has now been operating successfully on the market for almost 50 years.

Zeppelin adds that its participation in the company strengthens its own market share in the field of PVC applications.

Despite the takeover, Kitzmann will remain an independent company and continue to be managed in equal parts by Albrecht Gräfe and his son CEO Nico Gräfe, as well as continue to serve its customers from its Lengerich location.

Previously active primarily in the German and neighbouring European markets, with Zeppelin, Kitzmann will be able to plan for global growth.
