JULABO acquires automation expert GAF

JULABO, the temperature control technology professional from Seelbach, continues to grow. With acquisition of GAF from Saxony, the medium-sized company brings additional expertise in electronics and automation to the company. 

GAF (Gesellschaft für Automatisierungstechnik mbH Freiberg & Co. KG) comes from the project business. It specializes in the automation of procedural processes as well as the aggregation of electrical and electronic signals for process control. The company from Saxony thus ideally complements the core competencies of JULABO.

"A major trend in many industries, including temperature control technology, is the increasing demand for customer-specific solutions," explains JULABO Managing Director Markus Juchheim. "The expertise and wide range of experience of our new colleagues at GAF will help us to meet the requirements of our global customers even better." 

Founded in 1992, the company currently employs 12 staff, who will continue to look after the existing GAF customer base and project orders. In addition to this, the existing business model will be expanded and a connection to the central JULABO location in Seelbach will take place so that resulting synergies can be used by both sides. The founder and previous Managing Director of GAF will actively support the structural integration and the necessary transfer of knowledge until his retirement in mid-2022.
