The plant engineering and construction concern Eggersmann has purchased Backhus GmbH. The company, which manufactures composting plants and is headquartered in the Northern German town of Edewecht, has been a member of the Eggersmann group since 11 June, the parent company announced last week.
Eggersmann reported that the new acquisition enables the group to add dynamic composting with agitation to its existing range of anaerobic digestion and static composting offerings. By expanding its product range, the company is responding to market demand. While use of the Backhus brand name will continue, Backhus Gmbh was renamed with conclusion of the sale and it is now operating as Eggersmann Anlagenbau Backhus GmbH.
