St Michel sur Meurthe, France – on 1 June 2015
NUMALLIANCE continues its growth with the acquisition of E.M.S.
NUMALLIANCE, the leading manufacturer of CNC cold forming equipment for wire, tube, flat-stock and spring officially announces the purchase of E.M.S. (Electro Mécanique Saverne). E.M.S. specializes in the design and production of machines for chipless end-forming and rotary and blade cutting machines for tubes.
With this new acquisition NUMALLIANCE extends its offering in the tube processing for various industries. Indeed, the solutions offered by NUMALLIANCE are used for automotive (seating frames, exhaust), point of purchase (supermarket carts, display shelves), furniture, agriculture applications and more. NUMALLIANCE was born with a merger of three companies: MACSOFT, LATOUR and SATIME of whom the oldest boasts over 140 years of experience. The strength of NUMALLIANCE mainly lies in its great expertise in Mechatronic: the hybridation of mechanics and the in-house development of its user-friendly software, which enabled to develop internationally-recognized CNC machines. In October 2013, NUMALLIANCE already successfully integrated SILFAX, a worldwide-renown expert for the tube bending with a strong foothold in the aeronautics industry.
Established in 1949 near Strasbourg in Eastern France, E.M.S. will benefit from the support of NUMALLIANCE’s subsidiaries based in China, Germany, India, Mexico, United-States and more recently Slovakia, and also by its international network of sales agents and sales engineers. With global direct workforce of 225 and sales in excess of €45 Million, NUMALLIANCE generates more than 92% of its sales outside of France and 50% outside of Europe.
“With this acquisition, we keep extending our competences to offer our customers a global and fully-integrated answer to their needs with complementary and compatible products” said Joël ETIENNE, C.E.O. of NUMALLIANCE. “The addition of E.M.S. perfectly fits our company’s dynamic motion and constant evolution. We set our business internal and external growth target high for the year to come”, he added.
