Rohrdorfer Transportbeton GmbH takes over concrete division of Wipptaler Bau AG

Rohrdorfer Transportbeton GmbH has taken over Wipptaler Beton GmbH. The acquisition took place on 10 October, with retroactive effect from 1 October 2022. The company’s locations in South Tyrol will be maintained, as will the associated jobs. For both companies, this is a win-win situation.

Wipptaler Beton GmbH was a subsidiary of Wipptaler Bau AG, with two locations, in Vahrn near the motorway exit and in the craftsmen‘s zone in Gasteig in the municipality of Ratschings. A concrete plant including concrete mixers and concrete pumps is located there in each case.

Rohrdorfer Transportbeton GmbH is a company of the southern Bavarian Portland cement plant Gebrüder Wiesböck & Co. GmbH, with headquarters in Rohrdorf near Rosenheim. The company also includes Beton Lana GmbH, based in South Tyrol, which operates three ready-mixed concrete plants and two ballast plants here. The managing director of Beton Lana GmbH is Christian Grünfelder.

“The concrete sector is one of the many fields of activity of Wipptaler Bau AG. Future viability, securing our existence as well as secure jobs for our employees were among the decisive factors that went into the decision to sell the division. A competent partner was found to whom Wipptaler Bau AG will supply the sand and gravel for concrete production in the future. This made the decision easy for us. Thus, we can concentrate more on our other business fields: Asphalt, recycling of construction materials, civil engineering, road construction, infrastructure work, dredging, excavation work, transports, production of sand and crushed stone,” Johannes Egartner, Managing Director of Wipptaler Bau AG, emphasises.

For Rohrdorfer Transportbeton GmbH, Wipptaler Bau AG is a solid family business with similar values. With the takeover of the shares of Wipptaler Beton GmbH, Rohrdorfer takes over the ready-mixed concrete activities of Wipptaler Bau AG. Together with Beton Lana, also 100 percent owned by Rohrdorfer, the company thus expands and complements its current market presence now also in the northern part of South Tyrol. “We will continue to operate both locations of Wipptaler Beton GmbH, take over all employees and thus strengthen competitiveness. An enormous challenge for the future is to minimise CO2 emissions in the production of cement, and thus also of concrete, in particular,” says Alexander Mangstl, head of the ready-mixed concrete division at Rohrdorfer. “We have already tackled this major task company-wide, as we are convinced that concrete will continue to be the building material of the future.”

Rohrdorfer Transportbeton GmbH and Wipptaler Bau AG are certain that the future cooperation, especially in the areas of logistics and raw materials, will create long-term synergies for both sides that will strengthen both companies in their core areas and in their competitiveness.
