Weiss GWE and BDK now to be known as Weiss Pharmatechnik
As from 1 July 2015 cleanroom technology companies Weiss GWE and BDK Luft- und Reinraumtechnik will be merged under the new name of Weiss Pharmatechnik with the motto 'joining forces in containment solutions'.
'The products and services of the two companies are very complementary, and we are expecting the merger to result in many advantages and synergies,' says Bernd Weber, Managing Director designate of the new company Weiss Pharmatechnik. 'In the future we will be able to offer our customers a comprehensive product portfolio and an extensive nationwide service from a single source.'
Weber has headed up Weiss GWE and BDK for five years, and will take up his new position on 1 July. The other Managing Director of the companies, Wolfgang König, will retire on 30 June after 33 years of service.
Weiss Pharmatechnik will be headquartered in Hude, near Bremen, with a second location in Sonnenbühl, Baden-Württemberg. The Sonnenbühl site will continue to develop and manufacture the BDK range of products.
'I am delighted at the new challenges this amalgamation will present,' says Weber. 'For the workforce the only change will be to move to single internal processes and computer systems. There are categorically no plans to reduce the number of jobs.' Similarly, customers will notice little difference as they will continue to deal with the same contacts, and the product brands of WIBOjekt and WIBObarrier, as well at the BDK brandname, will be retained.
