Safety - a new Business Area
Effective January 1, 2017, Safety is a dedicated Division of the HOERBIGER Group. Safety technology plays an instrumental role in driving growth in the corporate portfolio.
The Explosion Protection Business Unit has profit and loss responsibility in the Safety Division. At present, it represents the only segment in the Safety Division. HOERBIGER’s medium-term objective is to develop additional safety technology related market segments through organic as well as acquisitive growth, and establish additional Business Units.
The acquisitions of the IEP Technologies brand in 2015 and the Newson Gale and BRILEX brands in the spring of 2016 allowed HOERBIGER to evolve into a global player in active and passive explosion protection. IEP Technologies is considered the system and service specialist for the entire range of explosion protection in dust and gas environments. Solutions that mitigate risks from electrostatic spark discharges offered by Newson Gale and the world’s leading explosion vents and flameless vents made by BRILEX round out the HOERBIGER Safety portfolio.
