Company Information

Vienna, Austria/Rovigo, Italy - In the course of the strategic focus on the large-scale production of high-quality and sophisticated hydraulic and industrial hoses, Semperit AG Holding sells the Italian Semperflex production site Roiter in Rovigo/Northern Italy to the Italian Matec Group.

"By selling the factory, we are taking another step towards a Group-wide complexity reduction within the scope of our restructuring and transformation process," says Martin Füllenbach, Chairman of the Management Board of Semperit AG Holding. "Following the expansion of the Czech location Odry, which therefore became a process-optimised producer of large volumes in the quality and high-performance sector, the high-quality hose manufacturer Roiter no longer fits in with the Semperflex production footprint. We have found an ideal buyer in the Matec Group, which adds special rubber hoses to its portfolio and will be connected to us by a close business relationship."

In the future, Semperflex will focus on the European mega factory in Odry/Czech Republic and the two large Asian plants in addition to its headquarters in Wimpassing/Lower Austria. The contract was recently signed. We have agreed not to disclose any information on the purchase price.
