Atlas Copco is buying German vacuum equipment and services distributor Ehrler and Beck.

Founded in 1978, Ehrler and Beck offers vacuum pumps, compressor, combined pumps, spare parts, related services and more from leading manufacturers in Germany and around the world.

“This acquisition will increase our possibilities to serve Germany and neighbouring countries with industrial vacuum products and services,” said Geert Follens, Atlas Copco’s Business Area President of Vacuum Technique.

“Ehrler and Beck has a strong reputation and long tradition of serving diverse industrial markets such as packaging, printing, wood working, plastic and water treatment.”

The acquired business will operationally become part of the Industrial Vacuum Division within the Vacuum Technique Business Area.

Expected to close in January 2021, Atlas Copco did not disclose the purchase price of the acquisition.
