HOERBIGER adds Newson Gale to Safety Solutions portfolio

With more than 30 years’ experience in explosion prevention technology and a wide spectrum of solutions for customers’ processes ranging from loading road tanker trucks to emptying hand-held cans, Newson Gale has built on its standing and reputation in the UK with the establishment of a network of global distributors and a successful venture into North America.

“Safety and explosion prevention technology are attractive growth markets which ideally complement HOERBIGER’s core business and thus hold attractive development potential,” said Dr Martin Komischke, HOERBIGER Group CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board. “With Newson Gale’s reputation and know-how, we will strengthen our leading role as developer and global provider of performance-defining safety related components and services.”

Newson Gale CEO Graham Tyers added: “We have searched for a partner who will be committed to further develop the success of Newson Gale. HOERBIGER is a buyer active in the industrial safety business with global market access and providing a stable financial background. HOERBIGER’s vision of building a large Safety Division precisely matched our shareholders’ expectations for the future of Newson Gale.”
