REMA TIP TOP expands southern Germany conveyor network with Hempel Industrievulkanisation acquisition

REMA TIP TOP AG says it has acquired HEMPEL Industrievulkanisation GmbH & Co. KG, a conveyor technology company based in Neu-Ulm in a transaction that further expands its materials processing technology service network in southern Germany.

For 45 years, Hempel Industrievulkanisation has been a force to be reckoned with in the field of conveyor technology in southern Germany, focusing on the installation, repair and splicing of conveyor belts made of rubber and PVC, REMA TIP TOP says.  The company is also a service partner for the maintenance and renewal of conveyor systems, coating and repair of conveyor belt drums and idlers and wear protection technology.

“Both companies are linked by a long-standing partnership, which will be taken to the next level with the acquisition,” company Owner Roy Hempel, who started his career at REMA TIP TOP, said.

Bodo Wein of REMA TIP TOP, who will support Roy Hempel on the management board, said “Service and solution orientation will continue to be the unrestricted focus of our thinking and business in the future.”
