FunderMax and Alpacem are planning the future joint procurement of replacement raw materials and fuels.
The aim is to strengthen the circular economy and thus to intensify environmentally conscious economic activity. To this end, a separate competence centre will be created as part of a 50/50 joint venture. The company will have six employees and be based in Klagenfurt/Austria. The corresponding application was submitted to the Federal Competition Authority on 14 July 2020.
“With the joint venture we want to bundle our competences. FunderMax and Alpacem stand for sustainable business in the region. With this cooperation, we are focusing on the responsible use of natural resources, regional value creation and CO2 reduction,” says Arnulf Penker, Managing Director of FunderMax GmbH. The cooperation will also enable both companies to secure procurement and energy production in a sustainable manner and reduce costs.
“We are concerned with the environmentally friendly and resource-saving manufacture of our products. That is why we will not only handle procurement together, but also deal intensively with the fuels and raw materials of the future,” says Bernhard Auer, Managing Director of Wietersdorfer Alpacem GmbH.
FunderMax and Alpacem are pioneers with this cross-industry cooperation. The joint venture is scheduled to become active at the beginning of 2021.
