Getzner Werkstoffe GmbH has acquired a stake in its local distribution partner, Vibration Solutions Pty Ltd.
Getzner’s investment in the Melbourne-based vibration protection company, will strengthen its market position in Australia and South East Asia.
The vibration protection business is becoming more international, as increased urbanization drives demand for products that reduce noise.
CEO of the new company, Getzner Vibration Solutions, is Tim Scully.
"We are delighted to have gained a longterm partner in Getzner and to be able to meet market requirements in the field of vibration isolation with this strong brand,” Scully said.
Getzner’s regional sales director for the Asia Pacific region, Thomas Dorfner, said the company already has a strong international presence.
"With Vibration Solutions, we can build on many years of know-how and place our highly efficient solutions for vibration insulation even better which will benefit the construction and industrial sectors,” he said.
Getzner Werkstoffe was established more than 50 years ago.
The high-tech, elastic polyurethane materials Sylomer, Sylodyn, Isotop and Sylodamp are produced in the company’s headquarters in Austria.
“The versatile and long-lasting materials successfully reduce noise and vibrations in buildings, gyms, concert halls, railway and metro lines, on ocean vessels and yachts, on offshore platforms as well as in various HVAC and industry applications all around the world,” the company said in a statement.
