Blumenbecker Technik GmbH has closed its aerial work platforms plant in Bad Lauchstädt. The company’s "Hubmeister" brand and the Italian subsidiary were sold to Leichlingen-based Zweiweg Verwaltung GmbH, which is part of the Zagro Group.
"The business was no longer economically viable for us," explains Ralf Herzog, Managing Director of Blumenbecker Technik GmbH. "We are pleased to have found in Zweiweg a competent partner who will continue the Hubmeister brand and make good use of our Italian manufacturing base for their own products."
The employees in Bad Lauchstädt affected by the closure were offered jobs in other areas of the company. The service business for aerial work platforms will not only be continued but expanded by Blumenbecker Technik.
