Aker Wirth: A new name and identity

Earlier this year, Wirth became a fully controlled subsidiary of Aker Solutions, a Norwegian owned company. Wirth Maschinen- und Bohrgeräte-Fabrik GmbH changed its name to Aker Wirth GmbH, reflecting the change of ownership and the successful integration into Aker Solutions that has taken place since the acquisition.

“Our acquisition of Wirth complements and expands our customer offering. Aker Solutions is now one of only two suppliers in the world of complete drilling packages. In addition, the acquisition of Wirth’s mining and construction expertise strengthens our presence in the process and construction markets,” says Per Harld Kongelf, executive vice president of Aker Solutions. “Furthermore, we are happy, that Christoph Kleuters has accepted to continue in his position as Chief Executive Officer.”
