The companies say it specifically covers moulded foam processing; elastomer processing; lightweight composites; and, PUR-CSM technology for polyurethane spray applications. Flood injection for structural and decorative components is also part of the deal.
'We are uniting the core competences of two companies,' said Frimo CEO Christof Bonsch.
Frimo is contributing its mechanical systems used in moulded foam, elastomers and composites. Hennecke will focus on the wet-side of processes. It will supply mix heads and metering systems for high- and low-pressure machinery. Hennecke will also supply tanks, machinery for transporting polyurethane and processing.
Frimo will be the common point of contact for the partnership in the automotive sector.
Thomas Wildt, is Hennecke's CEO. He said his company is 'focused on the growth of both companies and this means new perspectives for our customers as well as for our staff.'
The deal, is restricted to technology used in passenger cars. Other powered transport areas such as motor bikes, commercial and agricultural are outside the agreement. Although components for these sectors are often produced in similar amounts to passenger car products, these are outside the agreement. This is because they often need complex technical production processes to be successful.
