GAW Group Pildner-Steinburg Holding GmbH take over majority participation of UNICOR GmbH


Dear Customers,
Dear Business Partners,

Today we would like to inform you about an important change at UNICOR.

Our long-term main shareholder, NORD Holding Unternehmensbeteiligungsgesellschaft from Hannover has sold its majority participation in the UNICOR GmbH to GAW Group Pildner-Steinburg Holding GmbH (, a family-run industrial holding company from Graz, Austria.

In 2005 NORD Holding GmbH and the management have acquired the UNICOR GmbH from the UPONOR Group. In seven years of successful and trustful cooperation we have developed the UNICOR GmbH into a globally successful company.

The proven management team of Klaus Kaufmann (CEO), Gerhard Haefner (technical plant manager) and Hubert Koßner (head of R & D) will continue both in management and as shareholders in the company.

The GAW group is a global group of companies for industrial plant construction and engineering which offers customer developed solutions from a single source in the three strategic areas of: paper, automotive & industrial solutions and environmental solutions. The GAW group employs 1.300 people and generates an annual turnover of 200 million Euro at an export quota of 90%.

The UNICOR management is pleased about having won a demonstrably successful, future-oriented family-run industrial investor as a major shareholder. From the synergies of the companies of the GAW group UNICOR will get positive impulses for further successful development of sophisticated corrugator technology, from which you as a customer or partner will benefit as well.

At this point we would like to thank you as a customer and partner for your previous confidence of UNICOR and we hope to continue our successful cooperation.

With best regards
