18.01.2021 Zeppelin acquires MTI Mischtechnik

Zeppelin Systems, Friedrichshafen, Germany, at the turn of the year, took over owner-managed MTI Mischtechnik, based in Detmold, Germany, whose shares were up for sale in October 2020 following insolvency proceedings.  MTI’s equipment portfolio complements that of the Zeppelin Mixing Technologies division, as the two companies predominantly serve different market sectors – both in terms of the focus of the technologies and global coverage. In addition, the expertise of MTI employees is expected to make a major contribution to the new parent company. The former MTI team at the Detmold site will continue MTI's future business under new management.

The Zeppelin Mixing Technologies division has been setting standards in mixing technology for years and the division has developed into an important pillar of the company. At the Kassel site, mixers are researched, designed and manufactured to meet customer requirements. With its modern on-site R&D centre, Zeppelin Systems carries out industrial-scale tests to optimise processes and procedures for production of sensitive raw materials. One reason for the company's success is not only its many years of expertise in process engineering, but also its high product quality – which also applies to MTI-manufactured equipment. With the acquisition of MTI, Zeppelin Systems will integrate both teams under one management while guaranteeing not only the continuation of a brand, but also a smooth progression of business operations at the Detmold site. This transaction will create an even stronger supplier with a global network locally focused on customer needs and driving new technologies. "With this acquisition, we are further expanding our market position in mixing technology. This is a big step that I am very pleased about," said Rochus Hofmann, managing director of Zeppelin Systems. "MTI has great products and an excellent service concept that will benefit us and our customers," Hofmann added.

The portfolio includes heating, cooling and universal mixers for plastics processing and chemical applications. This ideally complements Zeppelin Systems' product range. "Since the mixer solutions from MTI and Zeppelin are largely used in different industries, the overlap of the portfolio is small," Hofmann explained.

For the market, this offers above all positive synergy effects, as both companies are experts in the field of mixing technology. With over 70 years of experience in plant engineering and a high level of competence in the individual process steps, Zeppelin Systems offers not only individual product solutions, but complete concepts - from plant engineering to implementation.;
