ELAFLEX HIBY Group Announces Merger

May 29, 2020

After more than 60 years of successful cooperation, all business and production activities of the two affiliated companies ELAFLEX - Gummi Ehlers GmbH and ELAFLEX HIBY Tanktechnik GmbH & Co. KG have been brought together to operate under one single umbrella.

With retroactive effect from Jan. 1, 2020, the company has changed its name to ELAFLEX HIBY GmbH & Co. KG. All production and distribution sites including contact persons and contact details will stay the same.

The company also welcomes Thorsten Wasmuth as a new member of the ELAFLEX HIBY management. He will take over as well as promote a part of the ELAFLEX HIBY distribution division. Moritz Hiby, as managing director of the Plettenberg-based factory, will continue to be responsible for production. Stefan Kunter will continue to perform comprehensive executive duties and serve as CEO and managing director.

This consolidation constitutes the legal completion of what the majority of the company's clients have perceived as a fact for many years now – a uniform market presence of the entire ELAFLEX HIBY group of companies.

The company will strengthen its position in both the domestic and international markets, at the same time substantially improving its processes and increasingly focusing on new business segments. This approach will sustain efforts to ensure the first-rate quality of its products and the reliability of its services – it forms a good basis to continue our excellent cooperation with our business partners.
