The two companies complement each other perfectly and together we can now respond even better to the needs of our customers and significantly increase our reach. There are also many advantages for the employees: they now have access to a wide range of training and development opportunities as well as career opportunities within a larger group of companies. We are looking forward to the tasks ahead."

 "After many years of cooperation and a very good partnership with the company Lennox and its shareholder Thomas Kinzl, I am very pleased that we can welcome him and his employees to the Simon Hegele family with immediate effect. Together, we will be able to act even more effectively and efficiently for our healthcare customers. Welcome, Lennox team", Heiko Lindenberger is pleased to say. 

Mike Winter, managing partner of Simon Hegele Gesellschaft für Logistik und Service mbH, is also sure that the acquisition of shares is the right step for both companies: "We are very pleased that the companies Lennox and Simon Hegele are moving even closer together through this step. This will allow us to further branch out and expand the services of worldwide assembly, commissioning and installation of large medical equipment together for our customers."
