With the acquisition of Stork Cellramic, Impreglon has added Milwaukee to its US locations, after Atlanta, Boston and Baltimore. The new presence in the heart of the Midwest will provide Impreglon with a base from which it can serve potential customer across the entire Midwest as well as the greater Chicago area.
An added bonus: The four plants perfectly complement one another technologically. While Stork specializes in engineering solutions for high-performance metal and ceramic surfaces with subsequent complete processing including laser engraving, the Impreglon plants focus on PVD and polymer coatings. Now Impreglon's "One stop shop" strategy for its customers is also available in the USA.
As of October 1, 2011, Stork is a 100% subsidiary of Impreglon Inc., Atlanta. All shares of Impreglon Inc. are held by Impreglon SE, headquartered in Lüneburg, Germany. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
Impreglon SE expects to increase sales in 2011 by 35%, to approximately 74 million Euro.
