SWA is a partner to well-known vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, and develops and produces tools, machines and systems for the manufacture of vehicle interior, exterior and acoustic insulation parts. SWA's products are used in all the important vehicle manufacturing locations around the world and are an ideal addition to the Kiefel product and technology portfolio. SWA, which was founded over 20 years ago, now has around 130 employees.
The acquisition is consistent with the growth strategy of the Brückner Group and the objective to strength existing parts of the Group by expanding our product range.
By integrating SWA, Kiefel will add die cutting and pressing technologies to its technology range and will also develop competence in press laminating and pressing natural fibres, as well as in the corresponding toolmaking areas.
