Warehousing and logistics automation specialists BÖWE SYSTEC has agreed to take a majority stake in Swedish manufacturer and conveyor systems integrator SGA Conveyor Systems AB.
Founded in 1990, SGA Conveyor Systems develop and make tailored picking and transport solutions that have made their name around the world in logistics centres. E-commerce has driven its business recently as companies increasingly take their distribution logistics in-house. The firm’s products include roller and belt conveyor systems as well as sorting, picking and packing systems.
The acquisition of SGA Conveyor Systems AB is an important step for BÖWE SYSTEC. “Today, we are our customers’ single point of contact for integrated intralogistics solutions”, explains Dirk van Vinckenroye, Managing Director of BÖWE SYSTEC. “We offer them everything they need to optimise their sorting centers and warehouses – we are a one stop shop from goods in to goods out. The acquisition of SGA Conveyor Systems therefore fits in perfectly in our corporate strategy”, states Joachim Koschier, Managing Director of BÖWE SYSTEC.
Tommy Klasson, CEO and owner of SGA Conveyor Systems AB, also sees tremendous potential for this joint market presence: “Thanks to the merger with BÖWE SYSTEC, SGA will gain access to new markets across the globe. We are convinced that we will achieve exponential growth thanks to this cooperation.”
Henrik Mårtensson, Head of Technology and owner of SGA Conveyor Systems AB, adds “Whilst we bring our expertise in conveyor technology to the BÖWE SYSTEC group, at the same time, our customers will benefit from the high level of innovation and the sophisticated technologies that the automation solution provider BÖWE SYSTEC brings along. We are really looking forward to the joint future.”
