Hydro acquires German powder coating company MBG

Hydro has completed the acquisition of MBG Metallbeschichtung Gerstungen GmbH (MBG) and welcomes around 100 new employees to Hydro. The acquisition strengthens Hydro's position in the building systems segment.

MBG is a German powder coating specialist founded in Gerstungen in 1998, in the immediate vicinity of Hydro's logistics center. For more than 20 years, MBG has been an important partner of Hydro Building Systems for powder coating.

"This acquisition supports Hydro's strategy of further integrating and expanding the DACH (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) region's logistics center to offer our customers even greater product diversity and excellent service. We are delighted to have acquired the expertise and know-how of this specialized company," says Ralf Seufert, Vice President Hydro Building Systems.

The move completes Hydro’s range of aluminum construction systems in the DACH region with further integrated service offerings in surface treatment.

Closer to international markets

The business activities of MBG and the good cooperation with employees, customers and suppliers will continue unchanged.

Hydro Building Systems intends to continue its business relationships with its other surface treatment partners.
