Nireco and Erhardt+Leimer sign cooperation agreement

At the beginning of February, the time had finally come. The international Erhardt+Leimer group of companies and the Japanese long-established company Nireco signed a cooperation agreement.
The two technology specialists join their forces under the motto “Two Leaders – Customer Focus – Combined Strength”.

Combined strengths for higher customer satisfaction

By means of the cooperation the two partners combine consequently their biggest strengths. Above all, Nireco brings its excellent reputation and its customer relationships that have grown over the years to the alliance. Erhardt+Leimer also offers the highest technological standard in the field of sensor, drive and control technology.
Erhardt+Leimer operates in various industries. Presently, these include the textiles, printing and film industries, paper and tire manufacturing as well as the production of corrugated cardboard and batteries.

In a first step, the new partnership is limited to cooperation in selected industries. These are the printing and paper, film, hygiene, energy as well as the battery production sectors. In future, these selected industries will be provided with high-tech Erhardt+Leimer products for web guiding, web tension and web control via the sales channels of Nireco.
It is the companies’ common goal to meet customer requirements in the Asian region to an even greater extent than in the past by combining their core competences.

 “This new cooperation opens up enourmous possibilities for both companies. Those who know Japan and its high quality requirements for industrial products understand that combining the forces of Nireco and E+L will bring a strategic advantage in competition.
Japan is one of the world’s biggest and most innovative national economies. Achieving a strong position and utmost customer satisfaction in the Japanese market must be an integral part of a globalized company’s corporate strategy”, emphasizes

Dr. Michael Proeller, CEO of the Erhardt+Leimer group of companies.

Who we are.

Founded in 2019, Nireco International GmbH can look back on a long tradition as a young company. In 1931, a German engineering company opened a branch office in Japan. This very soon developed into the listed company Nireco Corporation.
A pioneer in the field of process control and inspection systems.
So it is only consequent that, in the course of stronger internationalisation, Nireco returns to the group’s original location with its latest subsidiary.
