The deal includes all assets and the chemical injection package (CIP) business for the oil and gas sector, the petrochemical industry and the power plant sector.
The acquisition is part of the Lewa Group’s strategy of specializing in pumps and integrated systems solutions.
“By connecting in-house engineering and production, we control the entire value chain and can ensure high quality. At the same time, we expect an improvement in our competitiveness in this sector,” said Peter Wagner, CEO of Lewa GmbH and responsible for the Industrial Division.
A new market is also opening up for Lewa, supplying products to power plants. “Seko has already served customers with CIPs. We intend to further cultivate and expand these contacts,” said Wagner.
A smooth transfer of business activities is planned for the coming weeks, with the retention of all staff. The factory’s current certifications in accordance with OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and the ASME “U-Stamp” for the production of pressure vessels will be secured and transferred.
Sylvain Latuilerie, who previously managed the local Lewa company in Dubai, will be the managing director of the new Lewa Nikkiso Middle East FZE.
