BST International has extended its product range through the acquisitions of betacontrol and P2T Protagon Process Technologies. The companies will strengthen the BST Group under the name BST ProControl.
The former betacontrol provides technology for production optimization and measurement of flat web material, including thickness and grammage. Protagon is an expert in measurement and control techniques for paper and coating processes.
Percy Dengler, CEO of BST, stated: ‘Through the formation of this company, we will achieve a larger footprint in various industries. This makes BST a true all-rounder in quality assurance.’
BST ProControl will serve almost all lines of the BST Group that involve material control within the production process, including plastic and metal foils, nonwoven substrates, technical cloths, foam material, floor coverings and paper.
‘Our products are excellently suited to complement the offering of BST,’ said Michael Hecht, former CEO of betacontrol. He will take the role of CEO at BST ProControl.
Contacts and services will remain unchanged for existing customers.
The company added that the combined knowledge of BST ProControl and BST International's production and service network will enable customers to benefit from an extensive portfolio of services and support from a single source.
