Jan. 30, 2013 – The Bühler Technology Group says it will acquire 100 per cent of Maes SA.

Established in 1974 and headquartered in the Alsatian town of Haguenau, France, Maes SA specializes in products and services for the grain milling industry. The machinery of this family-operated company includes equipment for remachining grinding rolls of roller mills (regrinding and corrugating/fluting) as well as for manufacturing and retensioning plansifter sieves (used for grading grain particles after grinding on a roller mill). Maes SA has already been a distribution partner of Bühler for France and other French-speaking markets in North and West Africa up to now, including after-sales service. The company has more than 50 employees and generates annual sales (turnover) of about EUR 35 million.

With this acquisition, Bühler is continuing its market penetration and expansion of its service business in the fields of installation, customer service, maintenance, overhauls, and roll reconditioning. The company, whose operations will continue to be headed by the existing management, will be integrated as part of the Bühler France organization in the sales and services division.
