MUEGGE, a manufacturer of microwave and plasma technology, is expanding into Italy with the acquisition of LEANFA, an Italian manufacturer of solid-state microwave and high-frequency generators. Following the successful acquisition of Gerling Applied Engineering, based in Modesto, California, USA in 2015, the leap into Italy is the next milestone in the Germany-based MUEGGE Group's international growth strategy.
LEANFA has been a successful and established player in the field of solid-state radio frequency technology for more than 8 years, providing technology partners and international manufacturing companies with customized solutions in the field of microwave and plasma technology based on semiconductor solutions.
LEANFA's microwave and RF modules form the high-tech core of the new product line "Electromedical Devices (MedTech)" for different innovative applications based on hyperthermia. LEANFA technology meets the constantly growing demands of modern clinical diagnosis and therapy. The acquisition of LEANFA is also a promising step for MUEGGE into the attractive healthcare market.
Through the newly formed connection, customers will now benefit from the MUEGGE Group's complemented product portfolio.
"LEANFA is the perfect addition to our group of companies. Nicola di Modugno, Managing Director and Marco Fiore, Business Development Manager of LEANFA follow a portfolio strategy complementary to MUEGGE, so there are
huge synergies. At the same time, we also share the same quality standards, the same values and our enthusiasm for our work. "Together, we can efficiently implement major topics such as the use of solid-state high-power
generators in the industrial sector and thus further develop our vision of a modern, sustainable and global player in the high-frequency world," explains Dr. Klaus Baumgärtner, CEO of the MUEGGE Group.
Nicola di Modugno and Marco Fiore are also enthusiastic about the merger of the companies: "We have known and appreciated the MUEGGE team for many years. It is important for us to be able to preserve our values, to further develop our expertise and focus areas as a team, and to jointly leverage synergies from which our customers worldwide will benefit. We are looking forward to the future cooperation with our new colleagues."
Markus Dingeldein, President of the MUEGGE Group explains the next steps: "LEANFA will continue to operate independently as part of our group of companies and under the same brand name. Our medium-term goal is to develop a Competence Center for Solid-State High Frequency Technology at the Ruvo di Puglia site in order to perfectly respond to the market-specific and individual needs of our customers worldwide and to continue to live our shared values that our customers & employees hold so dear today."
