A new name has entered the glass sector thanks to the acquisition of Lahti Precision’s glass unit by Zippe Industrieanlagen, which will create new opportunities in the development of new technologies.
Zippe Industrieanlagen has announced that it has acquired Lahti Precision’s glass unit, which will continue operations under the new company name Lahti Glass Technology, with Jarmo Näppi as the new Managing Director. Mr. Näppi remains the contact person for customers, along with his team of professionals.
Zippe CEO, Dr. Philipp Zippe, said: “We are extremely happy about this acquisition, as it will create new opportunities in the development of new technologies, combined with the ability to serve our customers even better through increased service capabilities and an expanded geography for our national and international clients.
“Lahti will bring in further competencies e.g. in the field of raw material weighing, while we will also collaborate in the field of Research & Development in order to create outstanding technological solutions for which the potential has now become mutually bigger.”
“The technologies and individual market strengths of both companies complement perfectly,” said Mr Näppi.
Lahti Glass Technology will continue to serve its existent customers in the same way while now having the additional back-up of Zippe’s specialists from its headquarters in Wertheim, Germany. “The enlarged engineering workforce and experience will perfectly complement and strengthen Zippe’s own portfolio of highly-qualified specialists from which all customers will benefit at the end.”
