Körber AG pursues internationalization by acquiring Efacec Handling Solutions

The acquisition of Efacec Handling Solutions is a strategic fit for Körber’s Business Area Logistics Systems. The companies in the Business Area already provide world-class, smart and efficient logistics solutions along the customers’ value chain. These range from project planning, consulting and software through technology for conveyers, palletizing and storage to holistic systems integration for manufacturing, distribution and transportation logistics.
Efacec Handling Solutions will complement the Business Area especially with its international footprint. Efacec Handling Solutions is a subsidiary of Portuguese Efacec Group and head-quartered in Porto, Portugal. Background of the sale of Efacec Handling Solutions is a new strategic positioning. With its 180 employees Efacec Handling Solutions is a much valued business partner for various industries in Portugal, Spain and Belgium as well as in Eastern Europe. With a sales office in Singapore and a production site near Mumbai, India (ran as Joint Venture with Indian Godrej Group) it also has a strong base on the Asian market. Efacec Handling Solutions is offering a wide range of services and integrated solutions for handling applications, such as automated storage and retrieval systems, automated distribution centers, order fulfillment systems and baggage handling systems.
As a system integrator Efacec Handling Solutions additionally implements hardware solutions from its own product portfolio. The portfolio includes stacker cranes, miniloads, conveyors, automated guided vehicles, rail guided vehicles, sorting machines and a warehouse management system (WMS).
"We are pleased to welcome the team of Efacec Handling Solutions in the Körber Group," said Hildemar Böhm, Member of the Körber Group Executive Board. “Efacec strengthens our portfolio as well as our overall internationalization approach.”
"We believe that with Efacec Handling Solutions we can offer even more attractive products and services for our international customers in the Logistics business," emphasizes Hubert Kloss, CEO of the Körber Business Area Logistics Systems. “Efacec compliments and expands our current regional focus and portfolio. The team’s experience in international markets and projects will be a benefit for all of our companies.”
"We believe that we will have a successful and sustainable future as part of Körber’s Business Area Logistics Systems," said Mário Clemêncio, Managing Director of Efacec Handling Solutions.
The purchase of 100% of the shares and thus closing of the acquisition is still subject to the approval of the antitrust authorities.
