Festo acquired Seitz production division

By taking over the Swiss company Seitz product division, Festo is entering the worldwide marketing of solenoid valves with ex-protection for the highest safety requirements in the chemical and petrochemical industry. In the medium term, Festo has declared the intention to considerably expand and round off the product portfolio which it offers for this market segment.
With this move, Festo is completing its portfolio of valves for use in areas with explosion hazard and harsh environmental conditions. Among the products are variants with stainless steel housings, expanded temperature ranges down to -50°C and international certification. These specifications will now be gradually revised to include Festo products.
