Munich, February 08, 2021 – The MEA Group, a subsidiary of the Munich-based industrial holding ADCURAM, is expanding its activities in the field of concrete light wells. With Vilgertshofer Bausysteme GmbH (Alling), a traditional producer becomes part of the international construction supplier based in Aichach, Bavaria. The transaction has already been completed; details were not disclosed.

Vilgertshofer Bausysteme will operate under the name MEA Bausysteme Betonfertigung GmbH in the future and will strengthen the concrete know-how of the MEA Group. The concrete light well business has been an important part of MEA’s product range for many years. Complementary to the light and ventilation shafts made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, MEAVECTOR offers high-quality concrete light shafts produced by Vilgertshofer. In addition to standard sizes, the increasing market demand for special light wells can thus be covered even better.

“With this acquisition, MEA is taking an important step towards more growth. The concrete production in Alling represents the basis for a broader product range in the future and the expansion of production capacities,” says Dr. Philipp Gusinde, board member of ADCURAM Group AG and member of the advisory board at MEA. Gregor Gaisböck, Managing Director of MEA Bausysteme adds: “The expansion of our MEAVECTOR business is an important strategic step and the company site in Alling will become our competence center for all concrete activities. We are very pleased to welcome Vilgertshofer Bausysteme to the MEA Group.” ADCURAM had acquired the family-owned company, founded in 1886, in the summer of 2018 and has since been implementing an ambitious strategy for further growth and expansion. MEA employs around 700 people and, as one of the leading suppliers to the construction industry, manufactures special gratings, windows and drainage systems, among other products, in addition to light wells.
