On 1 January 2018, LAMILUX acquired roda. The group consists of roda Licht- und Lufttechnik GmbH, which is based in Langenau (roda Süd) and Isernha-gen-Kirchhorst (roda Nord), as well as the company Emmericher E.M.B Prod-ucts AG. As a result of the acquisition, the family-run company located in Rehau has grown by around 120 employees.
The three roda companies have become full subsidiaries of LAMILUX. The man-aging directors of these companies will keep their positions even after the acqui-sition: Bernd Kaemmerer and Jens Hartung will remain at roda Nord and Alfred Bosch and Frank Eberhardt at roda Süd. Burkhard Weyers will remain CEO of E.M.B. Since 1986, roda has been a renowned manufacturer and installer of high-quality smoke and heat exhaust ventilators, industrial ventilation systems, daylight systems and translucent facade technology in Europe.
The merging of the two companies is a continuation of LAMILUX Group’s solid and substantial corporate development and ought to further emphasise its posi-tion as a leading premium supplier of daylight systems and provider of custom-ised and tailored solutions for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems. Dr. Heinrich Strunz, Managing Director of LAMILUX is confident: “With roda, we have gained a strong partner.” He stated that, among other things, the company can expect significant growth in the field of ventilation technology thanks to the manufacturer’s portfolio. “This will allow us to further expand our established position in the market.”
To ensure that the customers can continue to rely on the manufacturers’ innova-tive and high-quality products and services, LAMILUX strives to cooperate in the development of new products in the future. Customers will still be able to count on their well-established contacts both abroad and in Germany.
With over 950 employees, LAMILUX achieved a turnover of 263 million euros in 2017. The company is one of Europe’s pioneering manufacturers of daylight systems, multifunctional glass roof structures and complex building control sys-tems and one of the world’s leading producers of high-tech carbon fibre and glass fibre-reinforced composites.
