Schuler AG has completed the takeover of German die construction specialist AWEBA.

Following approval from the relevant anti-trust authorities, Schuler – the market leader in forming technology – has now closed the acquisition process. As of July 1, 2016, Schuler will thus become the sole owner of AWEBA Werkzeugbau GmbH Aue. The AWEBA Group is one of the world’s leading full-service providers of dies and fixtures.

Schuler CEO Stefan Klebert commented: “AWEBA’s outstanding technological expertise in die construction is a perfect fit for our portfolio with major benefits for the customers of both companies. The acquisition and subsequent pooling of resources in die construction will add further momentum to Schuler’s growth.”
