Dürr Ecoclean strives for faster expansion of the global market and technology leadership

(PresseBox) (Filderstadt, ) After the successful refocusing under the umbrella of the Dürr Group, the Dürr Ecoclean Group has become the international market and technology leader in industrial parts cleaning over the last few years. Now, various strategic options for the future alignment and further growth of Dürr Ecoclean are reviewed. The goal is to strengthen the company’s international presence and the proximity to customers as well as to enhance the spectrum of applications and products.

“The heterogeneous target groups of the Ecoclean business require different structures in research, development, production and sales as well as in marketing than those present at the Dürr Group. In a strategic partnership with another company or with an investor we see the opportunity to respond more flexibly to the demands of our markets and therefore to accelerate our growth”, explains Chairman of the Board Michael Förster, who runs the company together with CEO Frank Ringat.

The further global growth of the Ecoclean Group also requires a consolidation of the strongly fragmented competitive environment. This may be realized for example by the acquisition of relevant companies. “In the globally growing market for industrial cleaning technology it is important to further expand our global presence. It is our goal to strengthen our competitiveness and to significantly boost the group’s market share with innovative solutions tailored to the specific needs of our versatile target groups. We will be even closer to our existing and potential customers, additionally we will be able to react in a faster and more focused manner”, states Frank Ringat confidently.

The Dürr Ecoclean Group has ten sites with approximately 825 employees in eight countries around the world. They generated around € 200 million turnover and an EBIT margin of around 6% in 2015. Customers are, on the one hand, the automotive industry and its suppliers, on the other, the company provides industrial cleaning machines and systems for the broadly diversified industrial market, including aviation, mechanical engineering, optics, medical engineering, electronics and semiconductor industry. With individually tailored technology from Dürr Ecoclean, customers can exploit potential savings for example in unit costs, energy consumption and process time.
