Hager Group and ABN Braun AG agree on strategic partnership

Blieskastel, 13th January 2014.

Working together to strengthen outdoor electricity

Wherever electric energy needs to be provided and distributed outdoors, solutions around electric meter pillars, cable distribution cabinets and house main supply units are necessary.

On 20th December 2013 ABN Braun AG and Hager Group agreed on a partnership in the field of outdoor electricity, which should be implemented within the coming weeks.

With this cooperation, Hager intends to take over the development and production for this field at the site in Nuremberg.

The long-term availability of this range for ABN Braun AG and their clients will thus be ensured. ABN will continue to equip this range with their innovative system components of meter board and distribution technology and market it through the specialised multi-channel distribution net-work under the brand name ABN System Geyer.

“Thanks to this cooperation Hager Group is able to complete their portfolio of solutions for the field of outdoor electricity”, says Bertrand Schmitt, member of Hager Group’s Board of Directors. The demand for outdoor applications is increasing in all European countries.

Werner Braun, Chief Executive Officer at ABN Braun AG, himself is pleased with the further strategic enhancement of the medium-sized company. “On the one hand, this partnership with Hager Group, an international company, will notably boost our business area outdoor electricity and on the other hand, our position as an independent family-owned and run company will be maintained.”
