Asslar, May 20, 2019. Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG ("Pfeiffer Vacuum"), a leading global manufacturer of vacuum solutions, and Busch SE ("Busch Group") signed a contract today that governs the future internal and external strategic cooperation of both companies.

"We are pleased that the possible collaboration with the Busch Group, which we announced in November 2018, has now become a reality. Both companies will benefit from it.
