HÖRMANN Finance GmbH (corporate bond, German Securities Code Number (WKN): A2AAZG) is changing its name to HÖRMANN Industries GmbH. This better emphasises the actual function of the company, as HÖRMANN Industries incorporates the operating subsidiaries of the family-owned HÖRMANN Holding GmbH & Co. KG. Only last year, the technology specialist expanded its investment portfolio to more than 20 subsidiaries by acquiring majority holdings in Funkwerk AG, a listed company, and VacuTec Messtechnik GmbH. The new name also reflects the diversified product portfolio of the equity investments. The medium-sized conglomerate offers a varied range of products in different sectors across its Automotive, Engineering and Communication segments. In the 2015 financial year, it generated consolidated sales of around EUR 435 million, operating EBIT of EUR 11.9 million and consolidated net income after taxes of EUR 6.2 million with a workforce of around 2,300 employees. The Group intends to further extend its strong technological position in the coming years through targeted investments and systematically expand its international activities.
