VINCI Energies acquires robotics and welding specialist conntronic
VINCI Energies is expanding its portfolio in robotics-based joining and welding technology through the acquisition of conntronic Prozess- und Automatisierungstechnik.
VINCI Energies acquires conntronic Prozess- und Automatisierungstechnik GmbH and thus expands the service portfolio of VINCI Energies’ Actemium brand, the leading full-service provider for industrial process solutions, in the fields of robotics, machine and welding technology. Günther Reverchon, previously Managing Director of the company, will head the new Actemium business unit conntronic.
Conntronic is based in Augsburg and specializes in the development and construction of customized welding machines and systems – from stand-alone machines to fully automated systems. The company has many years of expertise in CD (capacitor discharge welding), MF (medium frequency) and laser welding and offers all these technologies under one roof. This means that customers can be given comprehensive advice on these processes and offered alternative solutions. With the “conntronic tec-center”, the company also maintains an R+D department that provides customers with feasibility analyses, component development, small series for process validation and the mapping of process-ready prototypes, among other services. In 2020, conntronic generated sales of around 9.2 million euros with 53 employees.
With the acquisition of conntronic, Actemium is expanding its technology and development expertise in robotics and welding technology, and thus also its range of products and services in the field of high-tech welding.
“With conntronic, we are integrating a highly innovative company with exceptional expertise into our Actemium network and are thus consistently pursuing our growth strategy in the fields of robotics, machine and welding technology,” says Gerald Taraba, Managing Director of Actemium Germany. “Thanks to the product and service expertise we have gained as a result, we are opening up new markets and can also offer our existing customers additional services. In addition, we are thus driving forward the development of welding technology in the field of e-vehicle construction and battery production. In this way, we are not only playing a decisive role in a market of the future, but are also making a significant contribution to sustainable mobility in this way.”
“Since our founding in 2004, we have been committed to the continuous development of solutions entirely in the interest of our customers’ satisfaction,” says Günther Reverchon, head of Actemium’s new conntronic business unit. “Since we always want to inspire them anew, it was a logical step for us to become part of the VINCI family in order to even better fulfill our mission statement of complete customer satisfaction. We are pleased to benefit from a unique network of specialists on the one hand, and to share and strengthen our own expertise on the other.”
