Starting July 1, 2019, Lutze Conveying Sweden AB takes over the operations of EKM Eklund Materialhandling AB.
EKM provides the industry with supplies focused on conveyor accessories and transmission belts. EKM is a reseller of the French Colmant Cuvelier RPS range for V-belts for major industrial operations in Sweden.
This acquisition gives Lutze a wider range and a platform for in-depth collaboration with machine builders and industries outside of the existing service network.
In addition to further development the cooperation with Colmant Cuvelier RPS on the Swedish market, Lutze will continue to actively introduce these products in Norway and Denmark.
"Transferring the business to Lutze was a natural step after the recent year’s expansion," says Göran Eklund, CEO of EKM Eklund Materialhandling AB. "Lutze, with its representation in Scandinavia, will broaden the contact areas with existing and new customers".
"With this addition to the LUTZE Group, the prospects of reaching a partially new market, both geographically and productively, are created and we have an even greater opportunity to be a comprehensive partner for our customers in Scandinavia. The expertise and commitment that EKM has for its products and customers fits well with our organization and I look forward to, together with Göran Eklund, continuing the good work he has been doing for more than 30 years”, says Leif Ivansson, responsible for Lutze´s activities in Scandinavia.
Lutze Conveying Sweden AB, as the local Swedish entity of the international LUTZE Group, is one of Northern Europe's leading suppliers of conveyor belts, wear protection, screening media and service to companies that handle bulk materials. The LUTE Group is represented in 38 locations in 6 countries.
