NETZSCH Grinding & Dispersing Expand their Product Portfolio

Selb, March 1, 2014 – In February 2014 the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing of the NETZSCH Group purchased the business of the company “VAKUMIX Rühr- und Homogenisiertechnik AG” and is going to resume the business activities as of March 1, 2014. With this step the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing expands their product range in the field mixing, dispersing and homogenizing.

Under the new name “NETZSCH Vakumix GmbH” business will be continued from the current premises in Weyhe-Dreye near Bremen in Lower Saxony. The company “VAKUMIX Rühr- und Homogenisiertechnik AG” had been founded there back in 1995. The product range comprises customized systems like mixers, homogenizers, homogenizing mixers and process systems from the laboratory size up to a complete production plant. The machines are mainly used for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical and food applications.

„The product portfolio of the “VAKUMIX AG” and of the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing ideally complement one another because there is no overlap of products. We will be able to offer our customers even better and more comprehensive solutions within the mixing and dispersion technology. At the same time we will strengthen our presence in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic sector,” said Dimitrios Makrakis, head of the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing.
