Pfeiffer Vacuum acquires vacuum component manufacturer

Acquisition to be financed in cas

Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG announces the signing of a contract to acquire Trinos Vakuum-Systeme GmbH of Göttingen, Germany. Under the terms of the agreement, Pfeiffer Vacuum will acquire 100 percent of the shares in Trinos effective January 1, 2010. The purchase price will be financed in cash. Confidentiality has been agreed regarding the total volume of the transaction.

By expanding the Pfeiffer Vacuum portfolio to include the vacuum components, chambers and systems from Trinos Vakuum-Systeme, the company can now offer its customers even more comprehensive solutions for their vacuum needs. The expertise possessed by the two companies in developing and engineering new technologies is also complementary. All regions and market segments will benefit from this acquisition, in particular the North America region and the analytical, coating and research & development segments.

Pfeiffer Vacuum Chief Executive Officer Manfred Bender explains: "Of all of the potential acquisitions that we have recently reviewed, Trinos Vakuum-Systeme makes for the best fit with us. The company is young, fast growing, profitable and active in the same markets we are. Trinos has a very good name in the marketplace. With this move, Pfeiffer Vacuum is taking a further step along the road to becoming a full-line provider of vacuum applications. We are convinced that Trinos’ integration into our worldwide sales and service network will be swift, and we intend to work together to generate further growth."

Trinos Vakuum-Systeme GmbH was formed in 1997 by Peter Spreitz and Marcus Weinhagen. The company employs a workforce of around 140 people. Sales revenues in fiscal 2008 totaled some € 18 million. Pfeiffer Vacuum plans to retain and expand the location in Göttingen, along with all of its employees. The two former owners will remain with the company as managing directors.
