Welser Profile Gmbh acquires Superior Roll Forming to expand manufacturing capacity to USA

The Austrian based family business Welser Profile acquires the US roll formed parts manufacturer Superior Roll Forming of Valley City, OH. For Welser Profiles, this will be the first production facility outside of Europe and their fourth overall.

With over half a billion Euros in sales in 2017, Welser expects to exceed these record-setting revenues in 2018.

“As of June 1st, Superior Roll Forming is now part of Welser Family”, said CEO Thomas Welser at a press conference in Gresten, Austria. Superior Roll Forming is also a family owned business.

All 300 employees have remained in the company, from production to the previous owner and managers. Superior Roll Forming recently exceeded $70 million (approximately 60 million euros) in annual sales and the new owner expects similar figures in the future. The purchase price was not disclosed.
