HAI Horsens aquires the family owned company
Becker-Menzenbach in Kurtscheid

A new acquisition has made the Danish company HAI Horsens European market leader 

The Danish manufacturing company HAI Horsens has become the absolute market leader within aluminum anodizing (surface treatment) in Europe. This is now a fact, after this family-owned group based in Horsens, Denmark, has acquired the German company Becker-Menzenbach, which has manufacturing facilities in Kurtscheid south of Bonn in Germany.

After the official acquisition on the 1 March 2020, Becker-Menzenbach will change its name to HAI Kurtscheid. With the purchase of the German company, the HAI group will acquire a large anodizing and powder coating facility.

With this acquisition, we will enhance HAI’s position as the leading European anodizing company. We will expand our network and strengthen our selection of services for our customers. This will make us an even more appealing business partner in the future, and it will enhance our position within the industry, says Jan Køpke Rohdemejer, owner and managing director of HAI.

The shareholders of Becker-Menzenbach are happy about this development. It was important for us that the company, its employees, customers and suppliers were given a development-oriented perspective that can be expected to be successful – emphasize the managing directors Dr. Thomas Becker and Norbert Menzenbach.

We believe, that in HAI, as an industry expert and competent company, we have found the right partner.

It is a strong match on all parameters. We have co-operated with Becker-Menzenbach for many years, and we know them as an amazing company. We are very excited about this acquisition, and we look forward to welcoming the skilled employees of Backer-Menzenbach to HAI, and we are also looking forward to our future cooperation with existing as well as future customers and business partners of our German division, says Jan Køpke Rohdemejer.

After the acquisition, the number of employees will be 220.

More than 100 years of growth

Over the years, HAI has made several acquisitions, which have all created synergies and added value, internally in the company as well as towards customers and business partners.

The company, which was founded by the great grandfather of the current owner in 1913, already acquired a number of smaller companies in the 1970s, and has been developing and growing organically.

It is particularly exciting that we are now growing and setting up our own production in another country. The market for anodising is increasingly international. The expertise and services of HAI are in demand all over Europe, and outside the European market as well, and we look forward to having our know-how and expertise come even more into play outside of Denmark, says Jan Køpke Rohdemejer.

As agreed between the two parties, the purchase price will not be revealed, and neither will the future turnover of the company.
