February 20, 2019 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Frankfurt am Main / Copenhagen, 20 February 2019 —- TTP AG, Frankfurt/Main and it's subsidiary TTP GmbH, has signed an agreement with the Danish NNE A/S in Copenhagen for the purchase of three NNE subsidiaries based in Switzerland, Germany and Belgium.

TTP AG is an operational holding company specialising in production-related engineering services for the process industry. It is the majority shareholder of TRIPLAN Aktiengesellschaft, based in Bad Soden am Taunus, an engineering service company with focus on the life science, chemical and petrochemical sectors.

NNE specialises in engineering and consulting services, particularly for major projects in the growth markets of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, and covers all areas of EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management) projects.

TTP AG plans to continue managing the three NNE subsidiaries in the European market as a largely independent company in the pharmaceutical and life science sector, and to revive the PHARMAPLAN brand name, under which the companies were known until 2017.

Joachim Grendel, the CEO of TTP AG: "TRIPLAN's local presence, competencies, business areas and value chains and those of the future PHARMAPLAN complement each other perfectly. This leads to a sustainably better market and competitive position thanks to growth synergies in Europe - even in the face of deteriorating economic conditions and market environments. Together we comprise one of the leading medium-sized engineering companies for the process
industry in Europe."

Dr. Andreas Bonhoff, CFO of TRIPLAN AG: "The names TRIPLAN and PHARMAPLAN stand for excellent engineering culture, which we want to preserve respectfully together with our employees and further develop in a quality-oriented manner. PHARMAPLAN and TRIPLAN are to present
themselves confidently as European companies, seize new market opportunities and at the same time act as attractive employers in the top league."

Jesper Kløve, the CEO of NNE A/S: "The transaction is a great strategic match for both parties, where NNE A/S strategy is to intensify the geographical focus on the markets and customers of Denmark, the US and India. I strongly believe that TTP AG will create a bright future for our colleagues in Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, by further developing the strong local presence in the markets"

The acquisition is expected to take effect at the end of March 2019. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price. The NNE companies in Germany, Switzerland and Belgium have around 360 employees and generated sales of 61 million in 2018. Triplan AG is active in Germany, Switzerland and India, and have 420 employees, with a consolidated annual turnover of 47 million in 2018.
