Födisch Group intensifies international expansion with the acquisition of Multi Instruments Analytical B.V. in the Netherlands
Dr. Födisch Umweltmesstechnik AG is continuing its international expansion strategy. Following the investment in CEM Solutions UK Ltd. and the acquisition of Testa GmbH, the technology group has now taken the next step in scaling its products and strengthening international sales. The Dutch company Multi Instruments, a specialist in the planning, installation and maintenance of industrial gas analysis systems, becomes a 100% subsidiary of Dr. Födisch Umweltmesstechnik AG.
Markranstädt, 7. September 2023 - Dr. Holger Födisch, CEO of Födisch AG, was pleased to announce: "This is the logical decision of long-standing and successful sales and service activities." Marcel Rosengarten, Investment Manager at NORD Holding, added: "We are very happy that Multi Instruments has chosen the Födisch Group. Certainly, for many market participants, this would have been a system provider of interest. With this acquisition, the group is in a strong position to expand the systems business in BeNeLux and especially in the Netherlands, with highly profitable and recurring service revenues."
Multi Instruments' experienced management team remains on board, ensuring the continuation and success of the company. "Retaining the existing management team was a key requirement for this acquisition. Their customer access, especially to customers in the process and analysis technology industry, knowledge of the regional competitive situation as well as specific emission regulations are essential for the joint success.", says Andreas Bösenberg, Managing Partner at NORD Holding.
Both parties are confident that the acquisition of Multi Instruments Analytical B.V. will have a positive impact on the future business and also takes into account the efforts of the owners of Multi Instruments Analytical to ensure a sustainable succession plan of the company. For Pierre Muller (CEO of Multi Instruments), securing the future of the company by embedding it in an economically strong and technology-oriented group was one of the most important aspects for the sale.
Multi Instruments Analytical B.V. not only plays a leading role in the field of gas analysis systems, but also in the field of water analysis, which complements the existing portfolio of the Födisch Group and opens up new perspectives.
With the integration of Multi Instruments, the Födisch Group now expects to have annual sales of well over EUR 50 million and a team of around 250 employees for the first time.
Further internationalization efforts and targeted acquisitions in the core business areas of environmental and process measurement technology are planned for the future.
