Safe for the future

The signing of the contract was preceded by intensive discussions and constructive planning. For Christian Gnaß, the exchange is a logical step: "Among other things, emco is the market leader for entrance mats. Kampmann is the driving force in many areas of air conditioning technology. Both have lost a competitor and gained partnerships with each other. "By strengthening the respective core areas, both Kampmann and emco are doing very well economically and are also well prepared for the future.

Hendrik Kampmann is also satisfied: "It was a very cooperative relationship. By focusing on the respective core areas, both companies will grow. "

Jobs are preserved

Both partners consolidate their headquarters in Lingen, because part of the agreement is that no jobs will be lost and the more than 100 affected employees of both companies will suffer no disadvantages.

The emco Group takes over the location of the Kampmann entrance mats in Gräfenhainichen near Leipzig with all employees and properties. The employees of the emco Group in the field of climate are outsourced to emco Klima GmbH. In the medium term, the production of emco Klima products will be relocated to Friedrich-Ebert-Straße in Lingen, the headquarters of Kampmann GmbH.
