Anton Paar acquires Brabender, which will be integrated into the Anton Paar Group as Anton Paar TorqueTec GmbH.

The acquisition is effective retroactively from January 1, 2023. The company, based in Duisburg, Germany, offers measurement and process engineering solutions for the testing of various raw materials and for recipe and process development. It covers a wide range of applications from food and feed to plastics and rubber, and even batteries and other special applications.

The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

For Anton Paar, the acquisition of Brabender is a promising addition to the product portfolio, especially in the area of material characterization, one of Anton Paar’s strongest growth markets.


“The decisive factor for Anton Paar’s decision to purchase Brabender was the know-how in the development and production of world-leading measuring instruments, which the company has built up since its foundation 100 years ago,” says Anton Paar CEO Dr. Friedrich Santner. “In line with its own long-term strategy, Anton Paar will sustainably expand and further strengthen Brabender’s sites in Duisburg and Hackensack (U.S.).”

“Being part of the Anton Paar Group opens up many opportunities for us – in research and development of our innovative products as well as in sales and service. For us, this is a great move that will definitely benefit our employees and customers,” adds Brabender’s executive director Dr. David Szczesny.
