"HOMAG is a great addition to our portfolio: the company is a global market and technology leader and has further growth and earnings potential. Dürr knows the mechanical engineering business very well. This is reflected in our success in areas like balancing, testing and filling technology. We will use our expertise and support HOMAG in optimizing its processes and structures. The automotive industry remains our core sector – but the HOMAG acquisition will enable us to position ourselves more broadly."
