Buhler remains in family hands

Swiss feed machinery maker Buhler Holding AG remains a family-owned company when three daughters of the current owner take over in the future.

Urs Bühler, the sole owner of the Buhler Technology Group, has planned the ownership succession at a later date with his three daughters. This way he created the basis for ensuring that the Group will remain in the hands of the family.

In order to implement the succession plan, the non-operating and part of the operating properties will be transferred to the private assets of the family in the first half of this year.

None of these changes will affect either the employees or the operating activities of the Group.

Buhler remains committed to Uzwil in Switzerland both as a production site and as corporate headquarters.

The Group will continue to be headed by Urs Bühler as Chairman of the Board and Calvin Grieder as CEO.

Buhler is a major world player in the supply of process engineering solutions, especially production technologies for making foods, feeds and engineering materials.

Buhler is active in over 140 countries and employs some 6,900 persons worldwide. In fiscal 2007, the Group generated sales of CHF 1,770 million (€ 1,180 million).
