Keba acquires Dutch automation firm

Austria-headquartered Keba has acquired a majority holding in The Netherlands-based Delem B.V, a leading player in the automation for the sheet metal machinery market.

Gerhard Luftensteiner, Keba’s CEO said, “We are delighted to have acquired Delem, as it is a company that possesses extensive experience and excellent know-how in press brake automation and supplies outstanding solutions which are relied upon by leading machine manufacturers around the world.”

Delem has posted sales revenues in the past financial year of EUR 14,8 million (31.12.2012).

Within the Keba Group, Delem will continue to be an independent company and operations will remain under its management team.

Eddie Draaisma, CEO of Delem stressed, “We are extremely pleased to have Keba as our new owner, as we know that we share a common philosophy of innovation and closeness to the customer. This means that Delem’s further development can be actively pursued.”

“As a consequence of the Delem takeover, Keba’s industrial automation business area, which currently covers the plastics, robotics, packaging and mobile operation/ HMI (Human Machine Interface) segments will grow to include sheet metal working and thereby considerably strengthen its market position. Keba is thus continuing its systematic internationalization process, which involves both expansion and the foundation of new subsidiarie, “ added Luftensteiner.
