Following Union Engineering’s acquisition of the Wittemann Company, LLC in April, the integration of the two companies has seen the latter change its name to Union Engineering North America.
The new identity is just part of the integration process; the goal is to align the two companies’ product lines and services and position Union Engineering as the premier global supplier of CO2 plants and services.
With the acquisition of Wittemann, Union Engineering cemented its position as the only true global CO2 plant supplier.
Announcing the launch of Union Engineering North America, CSO Michael Mortensen explained, “As a natural next step in our integration process we have changed the name of the Wittemann Company to Union Engineering North America, LLC.”
“Aligning the name with the rest of the Union Engineering companies is providing a clear message to our customers that we are now ONE company with a unified product line”
CEO Peter Kriklywi also commented, “It is crucial for our customers that we understand their specific challenges and can support them with the right and sustainable solution, whether they are a large enterprise or a small independent company. Technology is important, but so are their challenges related to security of CO2 supply, food safety, and reduced utilities consumption. Therefore, we are also offering a wide range of global service packages, making us able to assist our customers in fulfilling their targets.”
Along with the change of the name comes a refocusing of the regions served by the Florida office. Going forward, the office in Florida will focus on new opportunities in North and Central America, while coordinating necessary services for past Wittemann customers around the world.
Bill Geiger, former general manager of the Wittemann Company and current Managing Director of Union Engineering North America, LLC added, “Aligning the name with the rest of the Union Engineering companies is providing a clear message to our customers that we are now ONE company with a unified product line.”
