KEBA takes majority stake in KEMAS

KEBA has taken an 80% interest in the German technology company KEMAS. Founded in 1991 and based in Oberlungwitz near Chemnitz,  KEMAS specializes in what KEBA describes as “self service solutions related to the transfer of material resources such as keys, post, equipment, tools, textiles, weapons, etc. … [which] facilitate the safe and clear registration, administration, storage, disposition and delivery of objects to various users, which are thus protected against unauthorized access, loss, manipulation and abuse.”

KEMAS has a workforce of 75 and generate a €7.7m revenue in the last financial year.

Hans-Jürgen Grämer, the founder of KEMAS, and his son retain a 20% stake in the company.

The KEMAS name will be retained and operate under the umbrella KEBA brand. The operative management of the new KEBA subsidiary will also remain in the hands of the existing managerial team.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today, the KEBA said that there are “synergies” which will “strengthen KEBA’s position in the parcel automat market”.

“Owing to the shared features of the products, the competence and business areas of  KEBA and KEMAS are perfectly complementary and offer a range of synergy effects,” said KEBA.

“Consequently, the market opportunities for complete solutions for the receipt and  transfer of all types of goods will be greatly enhanced. KEBA anticipates that fresh growth potential will emanate from the takeover, as with the systems from KEMAS new markets and applications will open up and KEBA can offer its numerous customers an extended portfolio of comprehensive solutions.”
