The industrial and technology group ThyssenKrupp is strengthening its plant technology capabilities in Russia by integrating OOO Uhde and OOO Polysius to become OOO ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (RUS). The step will come into effect as of May 13, 2015. The integration and regionalization of the plant technology business worldwide is part of ThyssenKrupp's Strategic Way Forward. It follows the overriding goal of integrating ThyssenKrupp's businesses more closely so as to create sustainable value as a diversified industrial group.
Dr. Hans Christoph Atzpodien, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions: "Combining the strengths of our successful long-standing plant technology companies and acting as one company on the global stage in the future will increase our impact particularly in the regions and enable us to carry out projects worldwide on a whole new scale."
The Russian operations are being strengthened by consolidating the company's engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services in chemical, petrochemical, cement and other industrial plants as well as its expertise in bulk materials handling and minerals processing in a new joint hub with more than 400 employees in Dzerzhinsk and Nizhny Novgorod. In addition, the company is represented in Moscow through a further location.
Dr. Sven Mueller-Rinke, Managing Director, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions (RUS): "Being part of the global network of one of the world's leading engineering and construction firms while at the same time strengthening our organization in Russia will help us serve our clients' needs even better. Based on proven technologies and our long-standing experience on the Russian market, we can offer comprehensive solutions and services from a single source."
With over 6.3 billion euros in sales in fiscal year 2013/2014 and around 19,000 employees, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions ranks among the world's leading plant technology companies and holds top-three positions in key market segments. The company offers its customers EPC services from a single source and has decades of experience gained in building more than 5,000 plants. With highly efficient chemical, refinery, cement and other industrial plants as well as equipment for open-pit mining, ore processing and port handling, ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions enables its customers to meet increasing worldwide demand for 'more' energy, raw materials and capital goods in a 'better' resource-friendly way.
