Albert Kerbl GmbH takes over clipping machine business from Aesculap Suhl GmbH.
Aesculap Schermaschinen GmbH, a newly founded subsidiary of Albert Kerbl GmbH, is taking over the "clippers and hair cutting machines for small and large animals" business from Aesculap Suhl GmbH. Aesculap AG, owner of Aesculap Suhl GmbH, and Aesculap Schermaschinen GmbH have agreed on a takeover as of 1 January 2021.

Albert Kerbl GmbH has been a close partner of Aesculap Suhl GmbH for several years and has already taken over all sales for the division since April 2017. Albert Kerbl GmbH is a family-run manufacturer and wholesaler of products for animal breeding and husbandry. "The basis for the transition is a closely-knit structure and a trusting partnership at eye level. Thanks to the innovative strength and steady growth of the Kerbl Group, we are convinced of the sustainable and successful development of the shearing machine business," says Dr Joachim Schulz, CEO of Aesculap AG. "The sale of the business unit is the logical next step to strengthen and further develop the shearing machine business," Schulz continued.

Aesculap Schermaschinen GmbH was founded to take over the business area "shearing and hair cutting machines for small and large animals", which will then operate as a subsidiary of Albert Kerbl GmbH. It is planned to transfer the employment contracts of the employees of this business unit unchanged to the new company. This means that all operational and employment contract rights will also be retained in full and will therefore be valid beyond 1 January 2021.
"We have built up a close partnership in recent years and developed the shearing machine business very positively. Now we want to combine our strengths and further develop the business unit as well as the Suhl site. Aesculap Schermaschinen GmbH will continue to shape the "shearing and hair cutting machines for small and large animals" business area from Suhl," says Albert Kerbl, Managing Director of Albert Kerbl GmbH.
