Breitenbach, May 22, 2018 — Von Roll Holding AG is selling its production site in Luhe, China to its long-standing sales partner Goode EIS. In Luhe, primarily mica paper and pressed mica plates are produced. Von Roll also produces mica paper at two other sites in France and Brazil.
Dr. Christian Hennerkes, CEO, says: “This transaction offers a good opportunity to further streamline our global production structures while successfully divesting a low-margin commodity business with annual sales of just under CHF 13 million. The Von Roll Group will receive over CHF 10 million from the sale. Furthermore, with this step we want to concentrate all activities in China on the expansion of our site in Shanghai, where we already generate the majority of our sales in Asia with highly developed surface and liquid insulating materials.“
