Stäubli Group expands its connectors portfolio with acquisition

Stäubli Group – a global leader in mechatronic solutions – has acquired RS Roman Seliger Armaturenfabrik GmbH, based in Norderstedt, Germany.

For over 100 years, Roman Seliger has been a specialised partner in the development of standard and safety dry-disconnect couplings, delivering solutions for the handling of all fluid media to its customers.

The acquisition of Roman Seliger by Stäubli is in line with the company’s successful growth strategy. It also allows to join innovative forces in new complementary fields such as big diameter couplings, breakaway technologies and cryogenics.

Acquiring RS Roman Seliger Armaturenfabrik GmbH allows to Stäubli to further increase its product range by adding specialised solutions to its portfolio.

All employees of the acquired business will join the Fluid Connector Division, while the factory in Norderstedt will become part of the global production network of Stäubli.
