The Stertil Group, part of Citadel Enterprises and located in Kootstertille, the Netherlands, announced the take-over of the business activities of Beissbarth GmbH. The company Beissbarth Automotive Testing Solutions GmbH now belongs to the Stertil Group and thus continues the company's history of more than 120 years.
Beissbarth has a complementary product offering with more than a century of experience in the automotive testing industry. According to Stertil, Beissbarth brings innovation, quality, and expertise in automotive testing solutions to the table. Their product range of testing and servicing equipment complements and enhances the total equipment solutions goal that the Stertil Group has for the vehicle maintenance, service, and repair industry.
The Stertil Group wants to create a total solution for the current and future developments within the vehicle equipment industry. The legacy group brand is Stertil-Koni, the specialist in heavy-duty vehicle lifting. In February 2022, the Stertil Group successfully acquired Nussbaum Automotive Lifts GmbH in Kehl with their expertise in world-class automotive light-duty lifting, and now in 2023, Beissbarth Automotive Testing Solutions.
All three companies specialize in their focus segments and will continue to operate as separate companies of expertise with their own distribution channels. At the same time, they offer a complementary contribution to a complete high-quality product solution approach. Under the Stertil Group, they will get the support required to tackle further the challenges and opportunities of the current and future combustion and electrification developments throughout the vehicle and equipment industries.
Beissbarth manufactures world-class modern testing and service equipment in the premium segment for automotive workshops and original equipment manufacturers – OEMs. This includes wheel alignment and driver assistance calibration (ADAS) products, headlight adjustment equipment, brake testers, lifts, and tire service and diagnostics machines.
The Beissbarth organization provides a valuable innovative product portfolio with exceptional quality and accuracy for technical inspections, service, and testing equipment, which through connectivity, diagnostic and predictive maintenance, is future-ready.
Last year, in February, The Stertil Group made the acquisition of Nissbaum for light-duty vehicle lifts.
