Freudenberg buys leading Australian sealing solutions distributor

Ludowici Sealing Solutions – market leader in hydraulic and pneumatic seal distribution

Weinheim, September 2, 2015. The Freudenberg Group is on track to grow its sealing business in Australia. The Freudenberg Sealing Technologies Business Group is taking over Ludowici Sealing Solutions Pty Ltd, Brisbane, Queensland, with immediate effect. The family-owned company is the market leader in the distribution of hydraulic and pneumatic seals in Australia. “With this acquisition, our Sealing Technologies Business Group will be able to widen its global distribution network for sealing solutions in the industrial sector and in the automotive replacement parts business in Australia,” explains Dr. Mohsen Sohi, Freudenberg Group CEO. “From there, we can extend our distribution network throughout Southeast Asia.”

Ludowici Sealing Solutions employs some 40 people and, in addition to its headquarters in Brisbane has five further offices in Australia. The company offers its customers some 50,000 products – chiefly among them hydraulic and pneumatic seals such as piston seals, O-rings, and rod and wiper seals. “Furthermore, the company has extensive expertise in the mining industry,” says Claus Möhlenkamp, CEO at Sealing Technologies.

The acquisition means that Freudenberg Sealing Technologies will also be able to expand its Freudenberg Xpress business, an excellent service that offers machined seals from regular production original materials and original profiles for replacement parts, prototypes and small production runs.

The Ludowici Group was originally founded as a tannery in 1858 by Johann Carl Ludowici, a German migrant. In the 1880`s, the company moved into the sealing business.
