Hydro to acquire Hueck

Hydro Hueck

Hydro Building Systems is to acquire the German aluminium systems manufacturer Hueck, aiming to reinforce Hydro Extrusions’ position in Europe. The transaction is subject to approval from competition authorities in Germany and Austria and is expected to complete by the end of first quarter of 2023.

Hueck is a family-owned business and provider of aluminium systems and extruded aluminium profiles. Its headquarters is in Lüdenscheid and the business employs 500 people. Hueck is divided into two businesses: Hueck Extrusion and Hueck Systems.

“Together, Hueck and Hydro Building Systems brands Technal and Wicona, as one company, will focus on sustainability, local presence and technical expertise,” said Henri Gomez, senior vice president of Hydro Building Systems. “With the acquisition of Hueck, our mission remains unchanged. We are fully committed to helping our customers realise new opportunities in the building and construction market. By having the best talents and a tenacious focus on business and the quality of products we deliver, we will be the partner that our customers need to reach their goals.”

Hueck Systems specialises in creating solutions for windows, doors and facades. Besides Germany, Hueck is active in Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and the UK, but also in other markets through well-established partnerships.

Hydro Building Systems provides innovative sustainable aluminium solutions for windows, doors and facades. The business’ leaders aim to set industry-leading standards by working towards a full circular economy. Through its 3,200 employees, Hydro Building Systems strives to add lasting value and develop a sustainable approach with new solutions that contain at least 75% recycled and 95% recyclable material – reducing the material impact on a building’s lifecycle.
