A further step towards the future has been taken. Our homepage was rebuilt and shines in a new look!

In order to present the innovations of Lacroix + Kress in an appealing way to the outside world we have, among other things, completely redesigned our homepage. Our newly-designed internet presence is now not only modern, but functional too. In addition to the intuitive navigation, our homepage is now also fully responsive, so that it can be visited without any problems while on the road.

Communication with our partners is very important to us, which is why we have used the new structure to expand the content of our homepage. News and updates will appear on the home page at regular intervals. It is therefore worthwhile to visit regularly in order to stay up to date.

– Back to the future –

For us as a copper wire manufacturer with our two plants in Bramsche and Neunburg vorm Wald, it means going back to our roots.

Since November 1st, 2020 we have been operating again under the name Lacroix + Kress GmbH. Decisive for this choice of name – and the “back to the future” – was the unchanged high level of awareness of Lacroix + Kress as a brand, which also stands for high quality. At the same time, this name offers a high level of identification potential for our employees.

In connection with the separation from the large corporation,Christof Barklage returns as managing director and CEO Second Managing director and CFO / CTO is Sébastien Mas from the Munich investment company Mutares AG. Christof Barklage was head of Nexans in Germany for many years and actively supported the plants in Bramsche and Neunburg vorm Wald for many years. “I believe in a bright future and I’m glad Mutares asked me. I didn’t hesitate for a second. “ , says C. Barklage.

The two managing directors have already started to initiate the transformation process. They see great opportunities in the market for our two plants and employees.

Nexans has signed an agreement to sell Nexans Metallurgie Deutschland GmbH (NMD) to Mutares SE & Co KGaA. With immediate effect, the company will operate under the name Lacroix + Kress GmbH. The new owner will give the company access to further resources which will strengthen our company financially and strategically in the long term and increase our chances on the market. The transaction was formally completed on November 1, 2020 and has been legally effective since then.

Mutares SE & Co KGaA was founded in 2008 and focuses on the acquisition and development of medium-sized companies in Europe that show potential for operational improvement. Mutares focuses on acquisitions in three segments – Automotive & Mobility, Engineering & Technology and Goods & Services – and actively supports and develops its portfolio companies with its own investment and expert teams as well as by acquiring strategic add-ons. Lacroix + Kress strengthens the Mutares segment “Automotive & Mobility” and will be able to profit from the synergy effects of the other companies in the portfolio in the future.

There will be no operational changes for our business partners. All contact persons, addresses and other details remain the same. We are looking forward to the cooperation with our new partner.
