Strategic partnership between LIEDER and ZIEGRA

Visitors of Anuga FoodTec, which takes place from 19th to 22nd of March in Cologne, may be surprised to find the two traditional North German companies on the same booth. The background of the joint participation is LIEDER Holding's investment in the ice machine manufacturer ZIEGRA.

More than 50 years of experience have made ZIEGRA a world-leading manufacturer of industrial ice machines and related technology: from the smaller laboratory machine, medium sizes for trade and processing to large, fully automatic systems for industry. In addition, ZIEGRA is also leading in the field of natural refrigeration.

"From strategic purchasing and production processes to sales activities in distribution markets, the two companies have a lot in common," says Marcel Vonnahme, Commercial Director of LIEDER. "By joining ZIEGRA, we have put our companies on an even broader basis. Both companies should achieve existing potential more quickly thanks to the synergies."

"With the family-owned company LIEDER, we have found a partner that stands for the same values. Our access to the markets matches perfectly. We both have ambitious customers who are looking for special solutions. By combining our strengths in the Hanover metropolitan region, we will be able to meet these needs even better in the future and thus guarantee growth and stability for future generations," says Johannes von Rohr, Managing Director of ZIEGRA.  

LIEDER, based in Wietze in the South Heath, is one of the leading manufacturers of servo and robot-controlled filling and sealing machines, food assembly lines and processing machines for convenience food and cosmetic products. LIEDER stands for innovative developments and decades of expertise in packaging and process technology. The company has a history of over 75 years.

Both companies will be exhibiting in Hall 7, on the extended booth A016/B019.
