Farmingdale, NY, Sept. 08, 2016  — Cemtrex Inc. (CETX), a world leading industrial and manufacturing solutions company, announced today that it has fully integrated its recent acquisition of Periscope, an electronics manufacturing company located in Paderborn, Northwestern Germany. The new Cemtrex subsidiary is now operating as ROB Cemtrex Automotive GmbH, which will serve the EMS market along with Cemtrex’s existing German EMS subsidiary. The Company has now secured a broader base and larger market share in the Eurozone and become a leading EMS company in Germany, ranking among the top 20. The Company’s newly combined ROB Cemtrex operating subsidiary has a greater than 35 year operating history in the German industrial market.

Recent examples of the successful integration include:

  • Cemtrex has added significant talent to its employee base;

Cemtrex’s Chairman and CEO, Saagar Govil (@SaagarGovil) , commented, “In a very short period of time, the combination of our existing German operation and Periscope has revealed tremendous synergies for us. ROB Cemtrex is now exceeding our earlier expectations, as evidenced by our record recent contract wins, including with a very large automotive industry supplier. Our opportunities in the Eurozone are bright and we have high expectations for our growing company.”

The European EMS market is expected to achieve a 10.1% CAGR from 2011 to 2017, according to German economic development agency Germany Trade & Invest.
