June 2020. Donges Group continues to grow and has signed an agreement to acquire Permasteelisa España from Permasteelisa Group. Permasteelisa España’s main activity is the design, manufacture and installation of glass structures for cladding building facades. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021.
Permasteelisa will complete the Donges Group with advanced and innovative solutions in the field of building envelopes and high-quality facades. In addition to Kalzip and FDT, the group thus has a third company in its portfolio that brings extensive know-how, especially when it comes to unusual building shapes and modern innovative facades. Synergy effects are expected above all from the strong presence on the Iberian peninsula, the expertise in the area of production for high-quality building envelopes and solid customer relationships on which Permasteelisa has built for decades.
Permasteelisa España operates in Spain and Portugal and has its administrative and production headquarters in Madrid. In 2020, the company generated a turnover of approximately 22 million euros and employed around 80 people. With more than 50 years of experience and many prestigious reference projects in the urban core of Madrid and Barcelona, Permasteelisa España is a highly respected player in its market.
“We are proud to once again expand the Donges Group portfolio. Permasteelisa significantly complements our building envelope expertise and will be able to create many synergies within the group. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues from Spain and are certain that this acquisition will significantly increase the success of the Donges Group,” comments Peter Brechtelsbauer, CEO of Donges Group/Donges SteelTec GmbH.
