The Cibes Lift Group has acquired 49% of GS-Aufzüge GmbH in Austria. The aim of this new company acquisition – named GS-Aufzuge Cibes GmbH – is to strengthen the local presence and intensify marketing efforts for vertical lifts on the fast-growing Austrian market.
GS-Aufzüge GmbH has been a Cibes Lift Group distributor in Austria for nearly a decade. Over the years, cooperation has evolved towards a close partnership. Signing this agreement with GS-Aufzüge was the next logical step. “We have enjoyed a close partnership with GS-Aufzüge for many years and we have always been impressed by the great progress and results of this company. We already know that we work well together, so this partnership makes perfect sense”, says Mats Engblom, CEO of Cibes Lift Group.
Austria is an important and fast-growing market for the Cibes Lift Group. GS-Aufzüge GmbH is strategically placed in Ottnang am Hausruck and is one of the strongest players in the Austrian home lift market. The company has a strong sales organization, its own crew of installers and service technicians and a great looking showroom with the latest vertical lift.
“We are very happy to become part of the Cibes family. I am certain that we will achieve great things on the Austrian market together”, concludes founder of GS-Aufzüge GmbH, Robert Gründlinger.
Cibes Lift Group is Europe’s leading manufacturer of low speed vertical lifts of Swedish design and quality for public access and private home markets with best-in-class after sales and service through a worldwide qualified network of subsidiaries and partners.
