Bekum Maschinenfabriken GmbH, Berlin has acquired the pultrusion business unit of ProTec Polymer Processing GmbH (ProTec) effective 01.04.2023. Bekum is one of the world‘s leading manufacturers of extrusion blow moulding machines with locations in Germany, Austria and the USA and stands for energy-saving and flexible technologies and worldwide service. With this diversification, Bekum is investing in a promising future market for fiber-reinforced plastics and is setting the course for further growth.
