Common-rail systems manufacturer Heinzmann has acquired UK-based Giro Engineering Ltd., a maker of fuel injection pipework products.
Giro Engineering will continue to operate as a standalone business from its office and production site in Southampton and remains a UK company. The fuel injection pipework products of Giro are an ideal complement to the existing product range of the Heinzmann Group, the company said.
Heinzmann and Giro Engineering Ltd. operate as specialists in the components market for diesel engines. Significant value is achieved through this strategic partnership. Both businesses have clear synergies which will provide opportunities for further growth and bring along great benefit for the companies’ customers, the companies said.
Founded in 1980, Giro has continually developed and enhanced its product range which has led to a global customer base including many of the world’s premier engine builders.
The company specializes in the design and manufacture of single and double walled high-pressure fuel injection pipes for a range of diesel engines. The product range now covers more than 1000 different engine types. The current key component is the Duoline sheathed fuel pipe.
Heinzmann has more than 120 years of experience with speed governing of industrial combustion engines. The new partnership will enable Heinzmann to operate on the market as a complete systems supplier and consolidate its position worldwide.
“Heinzmann continually pursues the strategy of supplying a comprehensive catalog of high-quality systems to engine builders and MRO organizations,” said Markus Gromer, CEO of the Heinzmann Group. “This acquisition completes the range of components developed and manufactured in-house for our Common Rail Systems.”
This provides the company the flexibility to offer perfectly designed products to meet specific customer requirements.
