Effective May 22, 2013, Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH in Feldkirchen/Donau, Austria, has acquired 100% participating interest in BRITAS Recycling Anlagen GmbH. NGR will operate BRITAS as a subsidiary.
BRITAS is known as a manufacturer and developer of filtration systems for heavily contaminated plastic melt streams. The automatic screen changers are especially well suited for filtration of post-consumer plastics waste and are used for high output rates.
NGR develops, manufactures and markets plastics recycling equipment in five different lines. The product portfolio covers applications in the areas of industrial in-house waste management and post-consumer plastics recycling.
This deal provides BRITAS with access to NGR’s global sales network and enables NGR to improve its market position and expertise in the post-consumer applications segment.
The new owners of BRITAS Recycling Anlagen GmbH have confirmed the company’s former owner Mr. Lucian Britchi as CEO.
Both companies are looking forward to handling the increased demand for high-quality recycling solutions.
