Washing Technology News from Switzerland: Schulthess Maschinen takes over Ferrum Waschtechnik

Schulthess Maschinen in Wolfshausen in the Zurich Oberland – manufacturer of commercial and industrial machinery –  took over Ferrum Waschtechnik on 1 January 2019. The company intends to strengthen its competitiveness with the merger of Swiss companies and aims at expanding its position as market leader in the commercial and industrial sector.

The trading company Ferrum  can look back on a hundred years of existence and has also been offering washing technology solutions for approximately 80 years. With the merger, Schulthess will be able to use and further create important synergies in the sale and services of commercial and industrial machinery, while Swiss quality can be relied on.

Apart from that, other advantages will arise, such as a complete product range as well as a dense service network in the field of washing technology and thus fast reaction times. The merger of the two companies should be completed by mid-2019.
