Progressus acquisition

Blickle acquires Swiss castor producer Progressus

Blickle from Rosenfeld, Germany, took over the business activities of Swiss company Progressus AG effective 1 July 2014.

Progressus has established itself on the market as a producer of primarily special stainless steel castors for over 50 years. In future, Progressus castors will be manufactured by the Swiss Blickle subsidiary in Lyssach. Sales will remain under the Progressus brand via the international Blickle sales organisation.

Progressus castors are primarily used in the medical, chemical and food industries. True to Blickle’s motto, the Swiss castors also stand for reliability, quality and a long service life.

With this acquisition, Blickle expands its comprehensive selection of stainless steel castors and its leading position in this market segment.

Detailed information on the Progressus products will soon be published on the website.
