GOTEC Group takes over the B&K Kunststoffwerke Group
Wülfrath, Germany – Effective 1 October 2017, the GOTEC Group is acquiring B&K Kunststoffwerke, a corporation with locations in Germany and China that specialises in high-quality plastic products and injection moulds. The acquisition will make a decisive contribution towards strengthening the GOTEC Plastics Division by adding production locations in Bonn and Breitungen (Germany) and in Taicang (China). Plans are in place to completely integrate all the business units at B&K parts into the GOTEC Plastics Division through an extensive restructuring, combined with investments in existing and new locations for global production of high-quality plastic parts within the GOTEC Group.
GOTEC Plastics specialises in the production of injection-moulded plastic parts for the electronics, automotive, mechanical-engineering, medical-technology and consumer-goods sectors. Efficient production in combination with expertise in high-quality injection moulding, elaborate special processes, gas-assist and 2-component processes in small or large series are the factors behind the success of this strategic within the GOTEC group.
B&K Kunststoffwerke has been producing high-quality plastic products and injection moulds for more than 40 years. The product portfolio ranges from special plastic mixtures and finished products for the automotive, toy and household-goods industries, to high-tech injection moulds for the company’s own production, as well as for other manufacturers of plastic products.
‘We have had points of contact with the B&K Group in our business activities in the past. As a result, we know and admire the company’s high-quality products and technically skilled employees. Our customers are increasingly interested in products and semi-finished products of this type. So, we’re very pleased to be joining forces with the employees at B&K. Together, we will make GOTEC Plastics a global and even higher-performing division’, says Lars Gorschlüter, CEO of the GOTEC Group.
