CDI Global ANZ guides successful transaction with the Waldner Group acquiring Laboratory Systems Group Pty Ltd

CDI Global ANZ was engaged by Lab Systems to undertake a divestment process, where we are very pleased to announce that the German based Waldner Group has successfully acquired the company.

Lab Systems Group is a leading provider of scientific and laboratory equipment across Australia. More specifically, they consult, design, manufacture, install and commission state of the art, high quality fume cupboards and other contamination control equipment.

The business is located in Lilydale, Victoria, and provides the Waldner Group "a consistent next step in expanding our customer base in the important growth market of Australia. Customers in the region will benefit from our broad product portfolio and high-quality solutions, whilst being able to rely on service and quality made in Australia", says Maximilian Englisch, Global Vice President of Sales at Waldner Group, who will together with the current management team, be at the helm of Lab Systems going forward.

Waldner are global leaders in the design and manufacturing of laboratory furniture, fume hoods and laboratory infrastructure systems. 

Toon van Beeck, Managing Partner of CDI Global ANZ notes that "we are extremely pleased for the Lab Systems outgoing owners to have sold to Waldner, and for the key managers and current staff base to now be part of a global company like Waldner. The strategic fitting of these companies are ideal, and we look forward to seeing the combined entities offer customers a complete solution within the laboratory space.”
