The Austrian automation specialist Pentanova has taken over the Conveyor Systems division of the insolvent plant manufacturer Eisenmann. The division, which specialises in material flow and intralogistics solutions, will operate on the market as an independent GmbH of the Pentanova Group in the future. "With this acquisition, we are investing in the future and strengthening our portfolio in the area of material flow automation. We are delighted that the management and staff of Eisenmann Conveyor Systems, with their extensive experience and expertise in the implementation of large-scale intralogistics projects, will now become part of the global pentanova family," explains Alfred Pfeifer, co-founder and shareholder of pentanova. The future pentanova Conveyor Systems GmbH will retain its headquarters near Stuttgart, Germany. "As part of the pentanova Group, we can continue to implement customised and high-quality intralogistics solutions for our existing and future customers in the usual reliable manner," says Sebastiano Sardo, previously responsible for the materials handling division at Eisenmann and in future managing director of pentanova Conveyor Systems GmbH. "Our portfolio and our global sales structures as well as all our full-service and operator models in the Netherlands, Singapore and Finland will remain. With Pentanova's competencies and technological know-how, we can further strengthen our range of automation solutions and aftersales services and are thus ideally positioned for the future," Sardo continues.
