Lapauw acquires Transferon

Lapauw International N.V. announced that the company has completed the acquisition of Transferon. Founded in Germany in 1971, Transferon has been delivering laundry equipment worldwide for more than 45 years. The company started with the production of dryers, then moved to develop the full product range including ironers, washer-extractors and tunnel washing systems. Over the past 45 years, Transferon has sold more than 3,000 ironers and more than 400 tunnel washing systems.


Special Focus in the design of tunnel washers

The Transferon team members and products will be integrated into a recently-created division of the Lapauw group. The new division is responsible for the design and production of tunnel washers, presses, dryers and all other supporting equipment. In announcing the acquisition, Philippe D’heygere, president of Lapauw International said, “I am very happy about this acquisition. Not only because of the fantastic team that is now joining our group, but also because the Transferon product range is very complementary to our existing product range. This acquisition allows us to bring complete laundry solutions to our worldwide customers.”

Reinforcing Mr. D’heygere’s statements, Steven Renders, CEO of Lapauw International, said: “The Transferon and Lapauw teams have been working together over the past several months to make sure the Lapauw tunnel washing solutions are giving the best answer to the current and future market needs, combining 40 years of experience with insights of existing Transferon and Lapauw customers. All products in the tunnel washer line adhere to these same overarching principles.”
