Gräfelfing/München (pta023/17.08.2020/12:50) - Dr. Hönle AG acquires STERILSYSTEMS GmbH. The Hönle Group is thus significantly expanding its activities in the life science sector. As a result of the pandemic, sensitivity to and global demand for disinfection solutions has risen sharply. As one of the largest UV suppliers, the Management Board sees very good prospects for the Hönle Group in this interesting growth market.

STERILSYSTEMS GmbH, Mauterndorf, Austria, has been one of the pioneers in the development of highly-efficient UVC systems for air and surface sterilisation, water disinfection and odour neutralisation for more than 30 years now. With up to 99.999 % germ reduction, the UV lamps work reliably against viruses, bacteria and fungi. Environmentally-friendly UV-disinfection is chemical-free and leaves no residues. The company has grown strongly in recent years and achieved an EBIT margin of around 20%. The Management Board also expects strong sales and earnings growth in the following years, particularly due to the increased sensitivity with regard to disinfection solutions.
In addition to the Austria home market, STERILSYSTEMS is operating world-wide in 36 countries.

Completion of the STERILSYSTEMS acquisition is planned for 1 October 2020. The consolidation of STERILSYSTEMS GmbH is also expected to take place on 1 October 2020. It has been agreed not to disclose the amount of the purchase price.
