PLASTON Group takes over WEZ Kunststoffwerk AG
The PLASTON Group with headquarters in Widnau in the St. Gall Rhine Valley region of Switzerland, is taking over WEZ Kunststoffwerk AG of Oberentfelden in the canton of Aargau, together with the company’s 60 employees. Thanks to the takeover, a successor has now been found for the plastics injection-moulding specialist.
With effect from the beginning of June 2013, PLASTON Holding AG has acquired a 100 percent share in WEZ Kunststoffwerk AG. The takeover will benefit both sides. PLASTON will be expanding its industrial division and strategically it will be even better able to compete in global markets. For its part, WEZ Kunststoffwerk AG has been looking to find a sound solution to the question of a successor and the takeover by the PLASTON Group now safeguards its future.
WEZ Kunststoffwerk AG is a supplier of transport-container solutions and injection-moulded plastic parts with a long tradition and is thus ideally suited to PLASTON, which has made a name for itself internationally in the field of industrial cases for tools and instruments. PLASTON cases and WEZ plastic containers complement each other in an ideal manner and the merger of the two companies does not result in any unnecessary overlapping. “WEZ is an excellent strategic fit for us,” says PLASTON CEO Markus Bormann.
PLASTON strengthens market position
The PLASTON Group will be investing in new products under the WEZ brand and is planning to strengthen its market position abroad. PLASTON operates plants in Switzerland, the Czech Republic and China and will be able to open up new international markets for WEZ. “In acquiring WEZ we are taking over a well established company with lots of expertise that enjoys an excellent reputation, especially in Switzerland. We want to expand our international market position,” says CEO Markus Bormann.
