Earlier this year, Wirth became a fully controlled subsidiary of Aker Solutions, a Norwegian owned company. Today, Wirth Maschinen-und Bohrgeräte-Fabrik GmbH changes 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.
For more than two decades Wirth has been successfully collaborating with Aker Solutions on drilling packages. By formalising this connection through acquisition, the goal is to strengthen the existing collaboration and expand it to all of Aker Solutions drilling activities globally. The collaboration will also be extended to Wirth's mining and construction division to the benefit of Aker Solutions' process and construction activities.
Value in the Name
"The Wirth name is a valuable asset and will live on in the legal entity name and product names of the company," said Per Harald Kongelf.
