DISA and Wheelabrator Merge, Change Name
June 30, 2009
HERLEV, Denmark – The German regulatory agency has officially notified DISA/Wheelabrator Group that it has met all requirements for a legal merger. The merged organization will be a leading provider of technology and services to improve metallic parts.
Following an internal competition within DISA and Wheelabrator, a new name was chosen for the parent organization, Norican Group. The name Norican is derived from Noricum, an ancient Celtic Kingdom that existed in the Austria/Bavaria area. The region was famous for its high-quality Norican steel, which was widely used within the Roman Empire.
The strength of Norican Group lies in its two industry leading brands, DISA (the brand for molding technology) and Wheelabrator (the brand for surface preparation technology). The company will continue to build, develop and promote these brands and will use Norican Group for its corporate functions.
The organization represents over 200 years of expertise and experience. It has major operations in Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Poland, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States. Norican Group works with the industry’s leading representatives and business partners in serving its customers throughout the world.
