NUSSLI Takes Over Czech Event Construction Company Horizont
NUSSLI takes over the exhibition stand construction specialist Horizont as of March 1, 2013. The takeover will further strengthen the company's ability to implement technically and logistically sophisticated exhibition stand construction projects across Europe.
The company will be renamed Nüssli (CZ) spol.s r.o. and all of its currently around 40 employees will be kept on. "We were looking for a partner under whose roof we could continue our strategic objectives in exhibition stand construction. NUSSLI was our preferred partner, and we are proud to have become a group company," comments long-term Managing Director Norbert Seiter. He will continue as managing director of the company, which was founded in 1991, when it becomes a NUSSLI country company. Horizont operates a state-of-the-art production facility with a carpentry workshop and metalworks near the capital Prague. The site also offers storage facilities.
"The acquisition will allow us to further cement our position in the sector for exhibition stand construction, and will offer additional growth opportunities," says Andy Böckli, CEO at NUSSLI. "Horizont's strength lies in professional project implementation. Their state-of-the-art production facilities and logistics systems complement our requirements perfectly, and will allow us to offer unique exhibition presentations for our customers in Europe, and specifically in the core market of Germany," adds Peter Dübendorfer, COO of Exhibitions at NUSSLI.
