A German company is currently selling its used rubber pressing and molding equipment, as well as technology for manufacturing molded products from recycled rubber. The company specializes in the manufacturing of rubberized surfaces for equestrian applications, rubberized flooring solutions and other relevant merchandize.

The reason for equipment and know-how sale is retirement of the company’s owner. The manufacturer aims to alter its business model and focus on project consulting and project support in the field of equestrian riding arena construction.

 Goals of the asset deal

  1. Sale of entire or part of the Intellectual Property on the production machines redesigned or built by the company.
  2. Sale of all or part of the production machinery.
  3. Sale of all or some of molds, tools and auxiliary equipment for the production of various pressed rubber goods.
  4. Depending on the deal, customer contacts may also be sold.

Technology of rubber presses

Thanks to the company’s experience in the field of hydraulics, the presses have a very high pressing force – up to 3,000 tons. Two of the company’s presses were completely designed and built in-house. Due to the semi-automatic production, even products with large dimensions can be manufactured in large quantities.

Advantages of the presses:

  • Very high pressing force
  • Semi-automatic production
  • Company’s products successfully established on the market
  • Transfer of know-how and expertise to the buyer
  • The system can be adopted for further production lines
