Lüscher Products and Employees Have New Owner
Wednesday, June 05, 2013
The Wifag-Polytype Holding Ltd (CH) and the Heliograph Holding Gmbh (D) have jointly taken over all intellectual properties, products, current assets, brand/logos and a part of the employees from the former owners XPOSE Holding Ltd and Lüscher AG Maschinenbau.
In view of this asset deal, the new company "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" in Bleienbach (CH) has been founded. Within the next 3 months the whole operation and organisation of the former Lüscher AG will be transferred into new premises in Bleienbach. This will enable the new "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" to take advantage of all kinds of synergies in the area of administration, logistics and operations using the infrastructure and support of Daetwyler Graphics AG (a subsidiary of Heliograph Group).
The new "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" continues to service and manufacture the former products XPose!, MultiDX!, XDrum! and JetScreen to support the operation of the installed base for all customers globally.
Sales and Service of all "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" products will be handled by the sales and service hubs of the Wifag-Polytype Group and the Heliograph Group in their respective market/product application segments. Said this, "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" gets access to two non-competing sales networks of more than 20 sales and service organizations globally (www.wifag-polytype.com and www.heliograph-holding.net).Together with the integration of existing and potential new distributors "Lüscher Technologies Ltd" will have an ideal set-up to better serve the different markets and applications in favor of the customers.
"Lüscher Technologies Ltd" will be managed by Peter Berner (former CTO of Lüscher AG) to ensure continuity and innovation combined with the leverage of operational and logistical potentials of the new owners.
After a long period of uncertainty the employees can now focus on customers and their expectations again and are ready to support the installed base as well as new requests and challenges. Customers will be informed directly about the organization, contact persons and procedures in the next few days.
