EQOS Energie strengthens its industrial business
Linz (Germany) / Koppl/Salzburg (Austria), July 2, 2020 - EQOS Energie, a Triton Fund IV portfolio company, has taken over the operating and office equipment of the insolvent AML Elektrotechnik GmbH, located in Koppl near Salzburg, as of July 1, 2020 in an asset deal. The parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
Within the scope of this transaction, EQOS Energie not only hired the entire staff of AML Elektrotechnik, but has now also established a new business location in the Salzburg region, which is to be better developed in the future. EQOS Energie, which specializes in the energy, telecommunications and rail transport sectors, is active in five European countries with almost 30 locations. With this acquisition, the company is not only continuing its expansion offensive on the Austrian market, but is also expanding its existing service portfolio in energy technology to include the branch of production automation. Thus EQOS Energie will be able to completely cover the automation in industrial plants in the future and to push infrastructure projects in the Salzburg area - above all in power engineering.
In addition to switchgear construction and high-voltage engineering, EQOS Energie currently offers building automation for industry in Linz and process automation in Hamburg. Thanks to the former AML employees, know-how from production automation is now increasingly flowing into the company. The AML activities around the planning and installation of solutions for hardware and switch cabinet construction, including software as well as commissioning and life-cycle support, fit seamlessly into the power engineering portfolio of EQOS Energie and round off the industrial business.
