BHS-Sonthofen Acquired AVA
Effective as of 4 April 2018, BHS-Sonthofen acquired all shares in AVA GmbH & Co. KG, which is based in Herrsching in the greater Munich Area. As the product portfolios of the two companies complement each another perfectly, this move strengthens BHS-Sonthofen’s market position in the field of mixing technology. It furthermore supplements the company’s competence in the field of solid-liquid separation with AVA’s drying technology. The owners of AVA decided to sell the family business as they wish to retire yet lack a successor. The parties agreed to keep the purchase price confidential. The Herrsching site will be retained, together with all AVA employees. Both companies will continue to operate in the marketplace under their own name. BHS-Sonthofen is an owner-operated group of companies in the field of machinery and plant engineering based in Sonthofen/DE. The company offers technical solutions for mechanical process technology, concentrating primarily on mixing, crushing, recycling and filtration. BHS-Sonthofen has a global presence with more than 350 employees and several subsidiaries.
