A-TEC Industries AG acquires Gindre Duchavany S.A.

Minerals & Metals GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary  of  international industrial group  A-TEC  Industries  AG,  Vienna,  (ISIN   AT00000ATEC9),  today  signed  an agreement to acquire 100% of Gindre Duchavany S.A., France.

The purchase price was not disclosed. Closing is expected to  take   place  in  a few weeks, when approval  by  the  relevant  competition authorities  has  been received.

Both the seller and  the  purchaser  are  in  agreement  that  the   considerable synergies resulting from the new grouping, combined with the global presence  of A-TEC Group, will contribute  to  the   continuing  long-term  stability  of  the Gindre Group.
