Bosch Building Technologies plans to acquire GFR, headquartered in Verl, Germany. Agreements to this effect were signed on July 17, 2019 by Bosch and GFR’s current owner, the Wiedemann Group, based in Sarstedt, Germany.
GFR offers complete building automation solutions as well as related services and a comprehensive hardware and software product portfolio. The company’s solutions are the basis for sustainable building operation and are used in many kinds of facilities, including shopping malls, hospitals, and entertainment complexes.
For example, at the famous Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, Germany, GFR solutions form the control centre for technical building equipment (TGA). This control centre makes it possible to connect different trades, to monitor all TGA systems, and to control and govern individual devices.
GFR employs around 260 people at nine locations in Germany. “We are looking forward to the associates of GFR with their many years of in-depth expertise in the field of building automation,” says Thomas Quante, member of the executive management of Bosch.
“The trend toward the digitalisation of commercial buildings opens up entirely new possibilities. GFR has sound expertise in building automation and offers a portfolio that perfectly complements our own,” Quante says.
