Siemens Acquires ebm-papst’s Industrial Drive Technology Business: A Boost to Its Automation Portfolio and Global Sales Network

Siemens AG has announced its plans to acquire the industrial drive technology (IDT) business of ebm-papst, which employs approximately 650 people. The business specializes in intelligent, integrated mechatronic systems in the protective extra-low voltage range and innovative motion control systems. These systems are commonly used in free-range driverless transport systems.

Cedrik Neike, a member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Digital Industries, expressed his excitement about the acquisition. He believes that ebm-papst’s innovative portfolio and skilled workforce are a great match for Siemens and will enable it to explore new business opportunities in the rapidly expanding market for intelligent, battery-powered drive solutions in intralogistics and mobile robot solutions.

The IDT products are considered intelligent, integrated mechatronic systems that support the automation and digitalization of production processes. By integrating these products into the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens aims to drive growth in the market segment. The IDT solutions are used in mobile robots, driverless transport vehicles, and automation of auxiliary processes, contributing to increased flexibility and productivity in modern production environments.

By integrating the IDT portfolio into its existing automation offerings and leveraging its global sales network, Siemens expects to access new markets and realize substantial business potential in the realm of flexible and autonomous factory automation. The transaction is anticipated to be finalized by mid-2025 pending necessary approvals from foreign trade and merger control authorities. While the purchase price has not been disclosed as per agreement between the two parties
