EagleBurgmann, a Joint Venture of the Freudenberg and EKK Group, acquired Tianjin Nibot Seal Technology Co. Ltd., the Chinese company in Tianjin, to 100% on June 19, 2015. Tianjin is a major industrial center and an important seaport in the northeast of China, approximately 145 kilometers from Peking. The acquired company is an experienced specialist with regard to maintenance, retrofit, repair and service of gas seals in the e.g. oil&gas and petrochemical and chemical industry sectors.
Over many years it has made a very good name for itself with international end users at the northeast coast of China. "The acquisition is important to us in so far because it noticeably boosts our strategic alignment towards the end user business in China, making us even more competitive," says Dr. Stefan Sacré, CEO of EagleBurgmann. "In addition to our successful business with compressor manufacturers, our newly acquired experts now let us offer even better and more long-term service for gas seals."
EagleBurgmann has more than 13 sales offices and Service Centers located in industrial conurbations such as e.g. Beijing, Dushanzi, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Ningbo, Shenyang, Tianjin, Wuhan, Xinjiang, Xi’an, Yulin or Zibo. And so the new subsidiary Tianjin Nibot Seal Technology, who owns numerous patents and licenses and is listed as supplier with the major operators, has access to a comprehensive network of locations.
