BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN (February 1, 2006) – Rosler Metal Finishing USA, LLC and B&U Corporation, global suppliers of surface finishing equipment and consumables, announce the signing of a definitive agreement for Rosler to acquire the B&U business.
Says Stephan Rösler, Chief Executive Officer of the Rosler Group: “The acquisition of the B&U facility and its product line by Rosler USA allows the Rosler group to continue its aggressive growth in the worldwide blasting business, with special emphasis on the North-American market.”
Mr. Rösler went on to say that “another benefit of this acquisition is that Rosler will be able to utilize the fully equipped B&U manufacturing facility along with our existing lining facility, located in Marshall, Michigan, to manufacture select blasting and vibratory finishing equipment from the Rosler product range in the United States. “
He further remarked that “by combining the sales organizations of both companies into a single sales network, Rosler will have a much wider distribution and customer base, making us more competitive and allowing us to achieve our long term growth target in North America.”
