Leonhard Kurz, an international manufacturer of decorative and functional coatings for automobiles has finalized the deal for the acquisition of the design-oriented production company Burg Design from the current owner, the Spanish automotive supplier Grupo Antolin. As an outcome of this deal, Leonhard Kurz will be able to expand its design and decoration capabilities and cater to its customers spread across the globe.
Burg Design was established in 1977 and employs over 200 people at its facilities in Steyr and Haidershofen in Austria. The firm specializes in the design and production of high-quality, large-format silk screen printed items and its designs are used in the white goods, furniture, sporting and automotive businesses.
With the acquisition of Burg Design, Leonhard Kurz will be able to broaden its range of design technologies, and offer customers a wider range of solutions when it comes to sophisticated and customized surface designs. Kurz had earlier collaborated with Burg on a number of projects for clients and had understood that acquiring Burg would create plenty of synergy.
Speaking about the new acquisition, Rainer Süßmann, Manager, Sales & Marketing Automotive at Kurz said that it gave the company great pleasure to welcome Burg Design as a new member of the group. Due to the synergies that would now be created in design and technology, Kurz would now be able to explore new design possibilities for the company’s global customer base.
Burg has a highly professional and competent team that will significantly help Kurz in expanding its business segments.
The new addition also makes perfect sense from a content perspective, according to Süßmann. He said, that while Kurz focuses on high-volume sales models of large-scale global auto manufacturers, Burg caters to customers like Porsche, BMW, Audi, Mercedes and other manufacturers in the customized and premium segments, and does so on an international scale. The two companies there complement each other very well.
