On 31 December 2010, Pfeiffer Vacuum“s acquisition of the Vacuum Technology Unit adixen from Alcatel-Lucent was officially sealed. And now, for the first time, Pfeiffer Vacuum will present its two brands Pfeiffer Vacuum and adixen at ComVac in Hanover, Germany, 4-8 April 2011. The significant increase in the product portfolio of Pfeiffer Vacuum means that, in the future, the company will always be able to offer its customers a perfect vacuum solution made from high-technology products. This new portfolio includes a complete line of turbopumps featuring magnetically levitated and hybrid-bearing systems, oil-lubricated and drysealing low and medium vacuum pumps, leak detectors, mass spectrometers, vacuum gauges, components and vacuum chambers. This will make Pfeiffer Vacuum a competent address for all applications in the analytical, coating, semiconductor, industrial as well as research & development markets. Manfred Bender, CEO of Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG, comments on the acquisition: We are delighted that the transaction has now been completed. During the last few weeks, we have already taken initial steps to integrate adixien. We are confident that, together with the adixen management, we are on the road to becoming a world leader in vacuum technology.
