Halder acquires SIRAG, UNIVER and UNIPROD
Ramus & Company has implemented a successful succession solution for the owners of SIRAG AG, UNIVER AG and UNIPROD AG. Two portfolio companies of Halder Beteiligungsberatung GmbH acquired 100% of the shares in the three Swiss companies.
Since 1987, the three entrepreneurs Adrian Emch, Othmar Seiler and Roberto De Zorzi have built up the group of companies consisting of SIRAG AG, UNIVER AG and UNIPROD AG and developed it into a leading Swiss supplier of assemblies and individual components. The group of companies specializes in the fields of pneumatics, process technology as well as automation and has been working for many years with leading global brands such as Emerson and SMC.
As part of the implementation of their succession plan, the entrepreneurs have decided to sell their companies to a buyer with promising synergy potential and thereby secure the long-term future of the group of companies. The companies will continue to operate independently after the sale and will retain their location in Steinhausen (ZG). In a gradual transformation process, the sellers will pass on their management responsibilities to internal successors.
The companies will be integrated together with Drumag Fluidtechnik GmbH and EPH Elektronik GmbH into Valeta GmbH. The merger resulting from the transaction counts over 2,500 customers and generates annual sales of approximately EUR 37 million in Germany, Switzerland and Lithuania with roughly 200 employees. SIRAG AG, UNIVER AG and UNIPROD AG, which focus on pneumatics and process technology, ideally complement the Valeta Group’s existing expertise in pneumatics, hydraulics, hydropneumatics, electromechanics and electronics.
