After nearly 50 years of partnership and close collaboration, the BWF Group is taking over a majority share in the dedusting technology sector of Jack Filter as of 1 May 2016.
Jack Filter Entstaubungstechnik has developed into the recognised leader on the Austrian market for filter bags in Austria since it was founded in 1947. BWF Envirotec with its head office in Offingen (Germany) is the leading international supplier in industrial dedusting, with its own production sites in the USA, China, India, Turkey, Russia and Italy in addition to an industrial network of partners.
BWF Envirotec is expanding its global presence with this merger and creating synergies for both partners in R&D, technology and sales. In taking this step, Jack Filter is emphasising its aspiration to play a leading role in the future too on the (increasingly globalised) Austrian market. Both partners can look back over collaboration characterised by mutual trust and respect that spans generations.
"We highly welcome this merger and are giving a clear signal to the market: proximity to the market and customers are essential aspects for us. In Jack, we have found a partner who like us, stands for innovative quality and economically viable solutions", in the words of Dr. Martin Dunkel, the BWF Envirotec Group Managing Director.
Alexander Gaggl, also the future Managing Director at BWF Envirotec, Austria, adds: "Both partners are family-owned businesses and attach importance to permanency. This applies equally to the business relationships with our customers and our employees on location. It is important for us to provide our team in Sattendorf a long-term perspective together with BWF Envirotec".
