As part of the Group’s network development strategy, Rubix has acquired SEALL s.r.o. – a leading supplier of hydraulic and pneumatic solutions and services.

SEALL was founded in 1991 by Jiri Pavlu, Jiri Zdimal and Miroslav Gallo. The business has developed to become a leading domestic distributor and services provider focused on hydraulics and pneumatics, with tailored solutions in sealing and hoses.

Headquartered in Chomutov, the business operates from five locations in the Czech Republic with 65 employees. SEALL is expected to deliver sales in excess of CZK 170m for the year ending 31 December 2021.

Jiri Pavlu will continue to support the company for a period of transition, whilst Petr Vorlicek, Managing Director, will continue in his current role – both with the clear focus on further growth and development of SEALL within Rubix.

Pinaki Banerjee, CEO of Rubix in Central and Eastern Europe, commented: “We are delighted to welcome the team at SEALL as well as its customers and suppliers to the Rubix family. This is an exciting development for our business in the Czech Republic, which confirms our commitment to the Czech market and marks our return to acquisitions in the country.”

Jiri Pavlu, Jiri Zdimal and Miroslav Gallo said: “We are pleased to have chosen Rubix as the partner for SEALL to support the company in its next phase of growth, as part of Rubix’s strategy of development in technical market niches.”
