JOEST took over Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik GmbH, a specialist in conveying, processing and automation technology.
As of October 1st 2019, 100% of Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik GmbH in Schermbeck and Everswinkel and all shares of Goessling Inc. in Tennessee, USA officially belong to JOEST.
„The acquisition is a win-win“, states Dr. Marcus Wirtz, Managing Partner of the JOEST group. “We profit from a form fitted addition to our product portfolio and the company Dr. Ing. Gössling and its employees profit from a stable base and a promising future.”
JOEST will continue to run Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik GmbH as an independent Company at its current location. The team from Duelmen is taking over the nearly 100 employees and the entire real estate. With this acquisition, the JOEST group now has over 850 employees worldwide. Dr. Gössling Maschinenfabrik GmbH has almost 50 years of experience in engineering, manufacturing and commissioning of machines and plants. Owner and founder Dr. Ing. Manfred Gössling developed it from a small company for conveying technology for drop forges and foundries to an internationally well-known specialist.
Many machine applications overlap with those of the JOEST group, allowing the know-how and activities to complement each other.
First and foremost, the variety in conveying technology for big industries is enlarged. Products like Hinged Belt Hopper -, Hinged Steel Plate – and Magnetic- Conveyors extend the product range.
The JOEST group can now offer complete system solutions to customers in the metalworking industry to an even greater extent. This includes screw manufacturers and stamping plants.
The JOEST group portfolio experiences a reasonable expansion in the areas of process engineering and automation through the acquisition of Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik. Last but not least, Dr. Ing. Gössling Maschinenfabrik has a subsidiary in the USA with modern manufacturing equipment and assembly plant. The acquisition also strengthens the JOEST group in its position on this strategically important continent.
