PRUFREX acquires 100% share in mikrolab GmbH in a move to expand its areas of business

PRUFREX International Export GmbH is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of 100% of the shares of mikrolab GmbH, a well-known development and production service provider for electronics systems which is based in Fürth. With this strategic acquisition, PRUFREX is expanding its areas of business and consolidating its position as a leading provider of solutions for development and production in the field of electronics.

As a full-service provider, mikrolab has around 90 highly-qualified employees, who are specialists in the development and production of tailor-made software and electronics solutions. The company offers its customers tailor-made solutions, from concept development and production of prototypes right through to series production. Worth a special mention is mikrolab's expertise in the realisation of real-time and security-relevant software for FPGAs, PCs and embedded environments.

mikrolab also has sector-specific expertise in fields such as ship navigation, industrial measurement technology and medical technology. mikrolab will continue to function as an independent company, but for the PRUFREX Group, its integration will mean an increase in warehousing and production capacity, as well as in development services.

Kurt Müller, CEO of PRUFREX, expressed his enthusiasm for the completion of the acquisition process: "This acquisition is an important step in our strategy and we are confident that bringing together the two companies will open up some major opportunities. We are pleased that the complementary range of services that mikrolab offers will mean that we can provide more comprehensive support to our customers with the successful implementation of their projects. Our new position in the market will also mean that we can offer our teams some great possibilities in terms of professional development."

The mikrolab management team also see the merger as an extremely positive step and are looking forward to their future collaboration. Joining the PRUFREX family will bring countless new opportunities and perspectives for mikrolab. Together, the two companies will be able to offer their customers more, whilst continuing to provide them with innovative solutions.

The integration of the two companies will proceed step by step, with PRUFREX and mikrolab working together to maximise synergies and find ways to utilise the strengths of the two organisations to the best possible extent. Customers of the two companies will benefit from a wider range of services and an extensive network of experts who will be available to help them with the realisation of their projects.
