HÜBNER acquires the GWU Group  

Neu-Ulm/Kassel, Germany (9 April 2019).
A family-owned company based in Kassel, Germany, and the global market leader in the area of gangway systems for buses and railway vehicles, HÜBNER has now acquired the GWU Group headquartered in Neu-Ulm, Germany. Following the integration of the GWU businesses in the HÜBNER Group, GWU's two managing directors Tobias Lexhaller and Horst Grein will take on executive positions in the newly structured corporate group – with Lexhaller heading the business segment HÜBNER Material Solutions.

"While HÜBNER is the leading company in the area of elastomer sealing systems for doors and windows for railway vehicles, GWU has established a similarly strong position in the bus industry. In addition to its innovative product portfolio, GWU is especially distinguished by its strong customer relationships with the most prominent European bus producers," remarks HÜBNER General Manager Ingolf Cedra, responsible for the Material Solutions business segment.
