MAN Diesel & Turbo acquires Mecos Traxler

MAN Diesel & Turbo Schweiz AG has completed the acquisition of Swiss-based magnetic bearing specialist Mecos Traxler AG, based in Winterthur (Switzerland). A further step towards a close partnership has been taken following several years of joint research and development and successful compressor train installation with Mecos' magnetic bearing technology.

The acquisition by MAN Diesel & Turbo's Oil & Gas Business Unit in Zurich (Switzerland) will further push the joint growth, especially in the Oil & Gas business.

Since its foundation in 1988, Mecos has launched magnetic bearing solutions for compressors, turbines and other high-speed rotating machinery serving in various industrial applications such as high-power laser, ultra-high vacuum and gas compression. Mecos will resume its business, continue to serve its existing customer base and develop further partnerships.
