In December 2019, the Balcke-Dürr Group initiated the vertical integration of the former independent Mutares investment La Meusienne with the aim of raising cost, sales andquality synergies.
In 2020, Balcke-Dürr Group focuses on three strategic objectives: First, the group intends to strengthen its position in the nuclear energy market, second, to expand its business of decommissioning services of nuclear power plants in Germany and third, to step up its activities for clients of the chemical industry. Extensions to the product portfolio are also being examined, as is inorganic growth through acquisitions, e.g. in the original cooling division, which will continue to be an important pillar of the Balcke-Dürr Group beyond 2020.
“The realignment of Balcke-Dürr was consistently pursued and completed in 2019. In 2020, the company aims to broaden its relevant market, both in terms of new areas of application for our existing range of products and services and strategic acquisitions.”
