Historically based in Baden-Württemberg, Böllinger, which today has an approximate annual turnover of €6m, has been particularly active with major German Original Equipment Manufacturers, such as Audi, Porsche, Daimler and BMW, as well as their suppliers. It provides these companies with quality inspection and quality assurance services, with excellent standards and a long-term partnership approach. Böllinger clients will now be able to benefit from TRIGO’s footprint in 22 countries to support their quality needs, either with their supply base or downstream in their international logistics platforms.
TRIGO, the global leader in quality inspection and quality assurance solutions for the automotive and aerospace industries, has been serving German automotive manufacturers across the world for the past 15 years. Until now its activities in Germany have been mainly in the aerospace industry, with offices in Bremen and Hamburg. By joining forces with Böllinger, TRIGO will be able to provide its automotive clients in Germany with a comprehensive portfolio of quality support services and a network of more than 150 quality professionals covering the whole of the country.
Benoit Leblanc, Executive Vice President Europe of TRIGO, said: “TRIGO is proud to join with Böllinger, which shares our values of operational excellence and integrity, to bolster our activities in the automotive sector in Germany. We are excited to welcome Böllinger’s teams to our family and will work together with them to provide extra value-added services to TRIGO clients in Germany, as well as to Böllinger clients internationally.”
Franz Böllinger, Founder and Chairman of the BÖLLINGER GROUP, added: “Joining TRIGO Group ushers in a new era for existing Böllinger clients, who will now be able to benefit from TRIGO’s significant geographic presence globally.”
The transaction is subject to the approval of the German competition authorities.
