BÖWE SYSTEC has signed an agreement to take a majority stake in SGA Conveyor Systems AB this week, a Swedish manufacturer and integrator of conveyor systems that is based in the Gothenburg area and, that is now officially part of the BÖWE SYSTEC Group.
SGA Conveyor Systems was founded in 1990. Their individually tailored picking and transport solutions have established it as a strong partner for logistics centers. It is particularly strong in the e-commerce market, where companies are increasingly handling their own distribution logistics. The product portfolio of SGA Conveyor Systems includes roller and belt conveyor systems as well as sorting, picking and packing systems.
The acquisition of SGA Conveyor Systems AB is an important step for BÖWE SYSTEC, a global supplier of smart automation solutions. “Today, we are our customers’ single point of contact for integrated intralogistics solutions”, explains Dirk van Vinckenroye, Managing Director of BÖWE SYSTEC. “We offer them everything they need to optimize their sorting centers and warehouses – we are a one-stop-shop from goods in to goods out. The acquisition of SGA Conveyor Systems therefore fits in perfectly in our corporate strategy”, states Joachim Koschier, Managing Director of BÖWE SYSTEC.
Tommy Klasson, CEO and owner of SGA Conveyor Systems AB, also sees tremendous potential for this joint market presence: “Thanks to the merger with BÖWE SYSTEC, SGA will gain access to new markets across the globe. We are convinced that we will achieve exponential growth thanks to this cooperation.”
Henrik Mårtensson, Head of Technology and owner of SGA Conveyor Systems AB, is convinced that the integration of the Swedish specialists into the BÖWE SYSTEC Group will not only strengthen the two companies, but will also bring benefits for their customers: “Whilst we bring our expertise in conveyor technology to the BÖWE SYSTEC group, at the same time, our customers will benefit from the high level of innovation and the sophisticated technologies that the automation solution provider BÖWE SYSTEC brings along. We are really looking forward to the joint future.”
