SEMPERIT
SOLE SHAREHOLDER OF SEMPERTRANS NIRLON, INDIA

In the course of ongoing international expansion Semperit AG Holding takes over the remaining 26% of the shares of Sempertrans Nirlon, India, from its former local joint-venture partner. This transaction makes Semperit the sole shareholder of Sempertrans Nirlon.

Sempertrans Nirlon manufactures textile conveyor belts and targets mainly the Indian home market. In 2008 the installation of a complete new production line almost doubled the capacity. This investment constitutes the basis of further growth in India as well as for increased export to the whole Asian region.
