“Our acquisitions focus on companies that help strengthen our market position in highly specialized segments. Through the acquisition of omniTECHNIK, we will be able to significantly expand and continue the strategic development of our existing business in chemical surface technology,” added Dr. Jörg Matthias Großmann, CFO of Freudenberg Chemical Specialities.
“Our goal was always to be among the top suppliers of thread locking products and we have succeeded in achieving this position over the past 40 years or more. As part of SurTec, it will be easier for us to leverage the market potential more effectively for innovative coating technologies. As the representative of the family proprietors, it was important for me to find a partner that sees itself as a strategic investor with long-term orientation,” says Heinrich Kuhn-Weiss.

“The company is in good hands with Freudenberg Chemical Specialities and SurTec,” explained Dr. Karsten Grünke, CEO of SurTec International. “Freudenberg Chemical Specialities has already acquired one company from the Kuhn-Weiss family, OKS Spezialschmierstoffe GmbH, and successfully expanded it. We expect that we will be just as successful with omniTECHNIK,” confirmed Grünke.
