Facing the future together

ELAFLEX, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, has acquired the German supplier and manufacturer of leak detection technology SGB GmbH as of December 1st, 2022.

SGB GmbH celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. SGB leak detectors are used for monitoring any double-walled tanks and pipes for leaks. The technology leader of innovative leak detection solutions thereby sustainably protects the environment.

The goal of both companies is to strengthen and further develop the entire portfolio of leakage and monitoring systems for double-walled tanks, pipelines, and containment areas. The focus is on leakage and monitoring systems for high-vacuum applications for hydrogen and LNG.

Stefan Kunter, CEO of the ELAFLEX HIBY Group says, "We are absolutely delighted to welcome SGB as part of the EH Group, which has been recognised for decades, with its management and employees. The acquisition of such a high-performance company provides us, as an internationally operating system supplier for refuelling technology, with an excellent basis for further development of our product concepts."

SGB will retain its operational independence and sales channels with Jost Berg remaining as Managing Director and continue to lead his team of 45 employees at the location in Siegen. Jost Berg explains, "We are very much looking forward to working together as we share the same visions and values. By combining our expertise and experience, we strengthen our leading positions in the market and create a future oriented basis, for our high-performance equipment and service standards.”
