Beumer Group Acquires Indec Airport Automation

The BEUMER Group has acquired the majority shares of Indec Airport Automation (IAA). This airport equipment company, headquartered in Bree, Belgium, produces products for automated baggage loading onto planes. “Acquiring Indec Airport Automation is a logical addition to our product portfolio in the Airports sector“, said Dr. Christoph Beumer, Managing Partner and Chairman of the Board at BEUMER Group GmbH & Co. KG.

Managing Director and former owner Dirk Fransen will continue to run operations at IAA for the BEUMER Group as he had previously. IAA has twelve employees in Bree, Belgium. “The portfolio offers an immense
reduction in flight transfer times at airports,” says Klaus Schäfer, CEO of Crisplant AS and head of the BEUMER Group’s Airport Logistics Business Segment in Aarhus, Denmark.

The BEUMER Group’s new products greatly simplify automatic baggage loading at airports. The first phase of the high automated system is already tested at Heathrow Airport in London. This high automated between 50 and 70 percent in terms of space and staff, saving time andsolution saves enabling substantially greater capacity. Another advantage is the accurate allocation of bags to ULD containers. This is an ergonomic solution with a special emphasis on safety, while treating each bag gently. It also reduces maintenance, because less equipment is used.
