GF Machining Solutions, a division of GF, is to acquire Liechti Engineering AG, Langnau/BE (Switzerland). The company is a leading specialist of 5-axis milling machines designed to produce blades and blisks for aircraft engines and power generating turbines.
With more than 10 000 planes in the order books, aircraft production is planned to stay strong for the foreseeable future and so is the demand for engine parts. The acquisition of Liechti Engineering AG will allow GF Machining Solutions to significantly strengthen its presence in this promising market sector.
Both companies can look back to a successful cooperation over the last ten years, with GF Machining Solutions acting as a supplier for Liechti. Their competences and product ranges are also highly complementary. The current management under Ralph Liechti will remain in place and the company continues to operate out of its present premises in Langnau/BE. The two parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price and further details of the transaction.
