Carbolite and Gero announce merger and North American distribution

March 18, 2015

Carbolite GmbH, the German sales organisation of the British company Carbolite Ltd., and Gero Hochtemperaturöfen GmbH & Co. KG have announced that as of January 2015 the companies will merge to form Carbolite-Gero GmbH & Co. KG.

The new company offers furnaces that operate from 30°C to 3000°C. Systems for applications in vacuum and under different atmospheres will be part of the offering, as well as high temperature furnaces with tungsten, molybdenum or graphite insulation. Both companies are part of the Dutch Verder Group. Following the merger the production area at the company’s headquarters in Neuhausen, near Stuttgart, will be increased. A new customer centre is also planned to showcase the company’s range of furnaces.

It was also announced that, as a result of the merger, Gero’s high temperature and vacuum furnace systems will be available in North America for the first time. Verder Scientific, Inc., the United States subsidiary of Verder Scientific under which Carbolite Gero operates, now offers Retsch, Carbolite and Carbolite Gero equipment with fully trained product managers to address all inquiries.

Michael Hager, Product Manager at Verder Scientific Inc., told PIM International, “With over 30 years of furnace manufacturing under the direction of Roland Geiger, Gero is a well-established furnace manufacturing company in the European Union and is excited to offer its products to the North American market. Gero furnaces are commonly used in Europe by companies in the aerospace, chemical, energy, and advanced materials sector as well as research and academia.”

The company offers PIM furnaces that can operate with thermal or catalytic debinding systems without the need for condensate traps.  | |
