Eggersmann Group acquires biogas plant specialist Bekon

German waste management equipment manufacturer, Eggersmann Group, has acquired batch-biogas plant specialist, Bekon Holding.

Located in the city of Marienfeld, the Eggersmann Group is one of the most rapidly expanding plant manufacturers worldwide with decades of experience in mechanical and biological waste treatment, according to the group.

“The integration of Bekon allows us to draw on even more experience and know-how in dry fermentation. The combination of both of our patents – with Bekon we increased the number by 30 more – means a clear add-on to our service portfolio and reinforcement of our market position,” said Karlgünter Eggersmann, CEO of Eggersmann Group.

Eggersmann Group acquired 100 % of the shares. In the near term, Bekon will now change legal status to become an LLC.

“The future Bekon symbolises the merger of two fermentation specialists,” said Thomas Hein, managing director of Bekon next to Karlgünter Eggersmann.

He added: “The new management is pleased about the strategic add-on and the intensive cooperation with the Bekon staff. The number of personnel of 30 employees as well as the site Unterfoehring remains.”

Ralf Sigrist, Peter Klessascheck and Tobias Bauer, members of the former Board at Bekon said in a statement: “After many years of being owned by financial investors, we found a new, powerful proprietor in the Eggersmann Group, which helps us to explore the international markets due to the high number of synergies.”

The value of the deal was undisclosed.
