20-05-2021 IPCOM acquires ALARA LUKAGRO, a leading manufacturer of acoustic noise control solutions
The IPCOM Group has acquired 100% of the shares in Alara-Lukagro.
- Creating a leading position and strong expertise in acoustic noise control
- Expansion of R&D and production capabilities
- Providing synergies with IPCOM company Atis International, acoustic specialist
Alara-Lukagro, founded in 1964, is a leading Dutch manufacturer of acoustic noise control solutions. With a production facility of approximately 20.000 m2 in Groot Ammers (NL), Alara-Lukagro manufactures products such as sound-insulating doors, acoustic enclosures, sound-insulating walls, louvres and silencers tailored to the customer's needs. This for any market, on any scale.
Alara-Lukagro has its own R&D facility to design and assemble products tailored to the customer's needs to make a project successful.
The acquisition fits perfectly in IPCOM's growth strategy to further strengthen its global market position in noise control. Both strive to reduce noise pollution in different markets.
Alara-Lukagro realizes a turnover of over 40 million euros with more than 100 employees.
“Joining the IPCOM Group is the perfect next step to fully exploit the potential of Alara-Lukagro. As the Group, especially Atis International, largely shares the same business DNA, we have all the elements for a strong growth story and future together"; says André Hameete, CEO and owner of Alara-Lukagro.
“We are very pleased to welcome Alara-Lukagro into the IPCOM family. The deal is a perfect fit as Atis International, and Alara-Lukagro are largely complementary. Atis International has built a strong position over the years in acoustic, thermal and fire resistant insulation materials, while Alara-Lukagro has built a strong international position in customized acoustic noise control solutions. Our combined product range and market position will strengthen our leading position as expert in noise control in various markets", says Remco Boerefijn, CEO of IPCOM.
