The HELUKABEL Group Welcomes a New Member
HELUKABEL acquires EKD Systems and as a result, adds drag chains to its portfolio.
The HELUKABEL Group is pleased to welcome a new member: ekd gelenkrohr GmbH, which was aquired at the beginning of 2022. The company, based in Erkrath near Düsseldorf, will operate as a subsidiary of HELUKABEL under the name EKD Systems, and is now part of our international network of 59 sites in 37 countries.
Founded in 1970 by Ernst Klein, EKD specializes in developing and manufacturing customized drag chains made of steel, stainless steel, and plastic. The company focuses on application-specific system solutions based on customer requirements, in small to medium volumes. To this end, the company has several machining centers, its own die and mold-making department, and a fully automated plastic injection molding department. "We are very happy to have achieved a succession plan with HELUKABEL, which will secure our team's jobs for the long term," explained previous owners Ansgar and Holger Klein.
For HELUKABEL, the acquisition is an important step towards becoming a complete system solution provider. As of now, HELUKABEL is the only company in the world that manufactures both cables and wires as well as drag chains. Our goal is to supply customers not only with individual components, but also with complete, pre-assembled and ready-to-use assemblies. This means that the end users have less work to do and can turn to one contact partner for all their questions related to connection technology.
Custom-made products have always been a specialty at HELUKABEL. EKD Systems is an ideal new member to grow our portfolio in this area. Want to find out more? Then visit www.ekd-systems.de to get to know our new subsidiary!
