BLH Lüftungstechnik in Germany acquired
SIG plc, the leading European specialist solutions provider to the construction industry,announces that it has acquired BLH - Bauelemente für Lüftungstechnik Hennen GmbH.
This acquisition supports our strategy to move up the value chain and provide a ‘one stop shop’ offering to our installer customers that includes consultation, design, fabrication and assembly, testing and after-sales services.
This acquisition provides SIG Air Handling with initial market entry into Germany, complementing our acquisition of Profant in Austria at the beginning of the year. Furthermore, BLH will help deliver strong synergies across our Air Handling businesses in Benelux and France, along with high potential for SIG Germany.
The existing management team of BLH will remain with the business to deliver the continued growth and development of the company.
Oliver Hennen, Managing Director of BLH:
“When my father founded the company in 1999 I was still in school and worked in production during holidays and Saturdays. While we were growing in the past 17 years a lot of things changed. But the keys to our success still remain the same: lean structures and small overhead, focus on product quality and putting a lot of heart and soul into the company. I’m really looking forward to the new opportunities and synergies that will open up with our integration into SIG Air Handling.”
