Croda International has announced the acquisition of Rewitec. Founded in 2003 in Lahnau, Germany, Rewitec’s solutions offer sustainability benefits by extending the lifetime and improving the performance of gearboxes, bearings and engines within wind turbine, automotive and marine industries.
Using nano- and micro-particle based additives, Rewitec’s ingredients form a reconditioning layer to increase the durability of machinery by lowering friction and reducing wear. The Rewitec team will form part of the Energy Technologies sector of Croda’s Performance Technologies business. Through Croda’s marketing and sales network, Rewitec will also have the support they need to grow sales, and expand the business, into applications focusing on lower carbon emissions and sustainable power.
