Loesche announced it has acquired the majority of stakes in the aixprocess and aixergee engineering
companies based in Aachen, Germany.

aixergee GmbH is specialised in the optimisation of production processes in the cement industry and well-established internationally in the areas of alternative fuel firing, performance improvement, emissions reduction and stabilisation of plant operation. aixergee GmbH combines industry-specific knowledge with numerical computation methods customised to meet the requirements of the cement industry in its optimisation concepts. Customers thus receive manufacturer-independent, purely technical-focused proposals for solution.

aixprocess GmbH develops models and tools for the simulation of complex process- and flow-relevant processes and has been providing solutions to customers from the power plant and process engineering sectors for more than 10 years.

"Through the incorporation into Loesche Group, a globally well-positioned organisation, we can even better ensure the successful support of our international clientèle," explains Matthias Mersmann who, as corporate manager of technology of Loesche Group, will continue to act as managing director of
aixergee GmbH.

Dr Thomas Loesche, Managing Partner of Loesche GmbH, commented: "We do not intend to act as a single source supplier for every project; however, we would like to offer the best solutions for the challenging tasks of our customers. We are therefore extremely pleased to have been able to incorporate aixprocess and aixergee, two sector leading companies, into our group. In this way we continue to strengthen our position as a competent partner for the cement, power plant, and natural resource industries," said
