BST eltromat strengthens its core competencies with restructuring in subsidiary areas

Following a detailed analysis of market prospects, BST eltromat International has decided to close parts of its BST ProControl business unit. Deliveries of new measuring systems and system upgrades from BST ProControl will cease at the end of 2019. The Service department will remain in place. A team of seven people will continue to serve the existing customers of BST ProControl around the world. This includes after sales support, help desk, service technician visits to customers and the delivery of spare parts and radiation sources.

The new “perfecting your performance” strategy of the elexis Group, of which BST eltromat is the biggest subsidiary, is focusing more systematically than ever on benefits to the customer. The partial closure of BST ProControl is a part of this strategy. The same applies to the acquisition of the majority stake in Nyquist Systems GmbH, Landsberg am Lech, Germany, which was concluded by elexis AG in early 2019. Thanks to their performance and reliability, the inspection systems from the TubeScan family of Nyquist Systems perfectly complement BST eltromatʼs product range in the areas of 100% inspection and web monitoring in the narrow web market. Both the partial closure of BST ProControl and the majority stake in Nyquist Systems represent a strengthening of the company’s core competencies.

BST eltromat founded BST ProControl GmbH as a 100% subsidiary through the acquisition of the companies betacontrol and Protagon in 2013. It was fully integrated into the processes of BST eltromat as an independent business unit in early 2017. The process of the partial closure will be carried out as smoothly as possible for BST ProControl customers.
