Schnaittach/Pirmasens, August 02, 2023. PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG, based in Schnaittach, Germany, has acquired the operations of ERGOFIT GmbH, based in Pirmasens, Germany, as of August 01, 2023, as part of an asset deal. After the recent merger of PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG and proxomed Medizintechnik GmbH, the company is looking forward to further growth opportunities to further expand its strong market position and to establish its leading role in the medical and healthcare market. In the near future, the business operations will be integrated into an independent limited liability company, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG, in order to secure the future of ERGOFIT, which specializes in the development and manufacturing of cardio and strength training equipment. Customers and business partners can continue to rely on proven products and services while benefiting from expanded expertise and resources.
“We know the market and have valued the traditional company ERGOFIT as a supplier and cooperation partner for many years. They produce high-quality equipment and have more than 70 years of experience and expertise, in addition to outstandingly motivated employees. The company is an excellent partner for us, as it optimally complements our range of services and we can thus achieve considerable synergies. We will use this in line with our vision to use high-quality technology ‘Made in Germany’ for the rehabilitation and health maintenance of our customers and patients,” says Marcus Melching, CEO of PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG.
Loyalty and fidelity
“I know that the last two months have not been easy for employees, but I have seen a great deal of loyalty and fidelity not only from customers and suppliers, but especially from our employees, which has ultimately shown us the way to move forward. I would like to thank all our employees for this. Now we have a perspective at the side of a strong partner and can take off again,” says Prof. Dr. Holger Krakowski-Roosen, Managing Partner of ERGOFIT GmbH. By bundling know-how and utilizing the respective strengths, this new constellation will result in many advantages for the future”, Prof. Dr. Holger Krakowski-Roosen continues.
Preservation of jobs
ERGOFIT GmbH was previously in a phase of insolvency and had initiated self-administration proceedings. The takeover not only secured ERGOFIT’s future, but also the vast majority of jobs. “The successful restructuring is a great success and confirms the confidence of the creditors in the sustainable restructuring of ERGOFIT. We have achieved our primary goal of continuing the traditional company and preserving as many jobs as possible, and we are very pleased about this,” says restructuring expert attorney Jens Lieser of LIESER Management GmbH in Koblenz, who, together with attorney Dr. Martin Kaltwasser, supported the management as general agent throughout the self-administration proceedings.
The integration of ERGOFIT as a wholly owned subsidiary of PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG is a clear sign of the commitment of both companies to strengthen their leading position in the industry and to meet the growing demands of the market with the brands proxomed, ERGOFIT and PHYSIOMED.
