Leonhard Kurz acquires Burg Design

The decoration solutions supplier expands its technology offerings and boosts its design competencies through this purchase
Burg Design in Steyr, Austria (PresseBox) (Fürth, ) Leonhard Kurz, an international manufacturer of decorative and functional coatings, has acquired the design-oriented production company Burg Design from Spanish automotive supplier Grupo Antolin, in order to extend its design and decoration capabilities for its global customer base.

Burg Design, which has over 200 employees at its Steyr and Haidershofen locations in Austria, was founded in 1977 and is a globally active specialist in the design and production of high-quality, large-format silk screen printed items. Burg’s design solutions are employed, for example, in the automotive, furniture, sporting and white goods industries.

This addition enables Kurz to broaden its range of design technologies, thereby offering its customers even more comprehensive solutions for optimally meeting the demand for visually refined and customizable surface designs. Kurz and Burg have already successfully collaborated on a number of customer projects in the past, and while doing so tailored the technologies of both companies to one another and combined them synergistically.

“It gives us great pleasure to welcome Burg Design as a new member of our company group, and we look forward to working together with a business that is involved in such an exciting market segment,” says Rainer Süßmann, Manager, Sales & Marketing Automotive at Kurz. “Thanks to synergy capability in design and technology, we are able to open up new design possibilities for our global customer base. The highly professional and competent team at Burg will assist us substantially in expanding our business segments.”

Süßmann also regards Burg Design as a perfect addition content-wise: “While Kurz is more active in the area of the high-volume sales models of large-scale global manufacturers, Burg mainly supplies customers like Porsche, BMW, Audi, Mercedes and other manufacturers in the customized and premium segments, and does so internationally. We will therefore complement each other very well,” explains Süßmann.
