OFRU Recycling GmbH & Co. KG (OFRU), manufacturers of solvent recycling systems for the recovery of contaminated solvents, has acquired Tecos Bruhin AG Product Line Cleaning Technologies (Tecos) headquartered in Altnau, Switzerland, on December 16, 2019. The acquisition adds cleaning and washing technology to OFRU’s solvent recycling product line offering.

A manufacturer of dispensing and cleaning systems, Tecos Bruhin AG’s core product offerings include cleaning systems for containers in the paint, coating, printing ink and the sealants and adhesives industry.

Since entering the market, Tecos has built up an exclusive customer base. Customers appreciate the impeccably clean containers, as these are the prerequisite for their flawless production.

“This is an important strategic step for OFRU,” says Denis Kargol, Managing Director of OFRU. “By adding Tecos’ expertise, products and capabilities, we are one of the few manufacturers to offer both solvent recycling equipment and complete solutions for cleaning and washing industrial containers for customers worldwide.”

“This acquisition will fuel OFRU’s global expansion. The new product lines offer OFRU an exciting opportunity to build a stronger, more sustainable global advantage in the integration of cleaning systems,” adds Kargol. “In the second quarter of 2020, we will manufacture the cleaning systems previously built by Tecos in Alzenau/Germany.”
