Bucher Industries and Sacmi Cooperativa Meccanici Imola a.r.l., Italy, have signed an agreement to sell 100% of the ownership interest in Laeis Bucher Technology GmbH to Sacmi Group.

Regarding sales and production technology, Sacmi and Laeis GmbH, will operate independently in the market.
LB Produktion GmbH is not affected by the transaction and will continue to supply its manufacturing and assembly services under a supplier agreement to Laeis GmbH and third parties in different fields.
