Zwick acquires LATZKE Prüfmaschinen-Service

Zwick acquires LATZKE Prüfmaschinen-Service with its headquarters in Wiehl in North Rhine-Westphalia, thereby complementing its service and product offerings in hardness testing. LATZKE specializes in the sale of hardness testers and their associated services, and for 20 years, has been active in the market with its expertise in this application area.

In addition to its existing products and services, through LATZKE, Zwick will also offer ASTM calibrations, refurbishing, metallography products, repairs, and spare parts for many manufacturers, as well as many services. Customers can now purchase all used, refurbished hardness testers from LATZKE.

"LATZKE's proven expertise optimally strengthens our competency in hardness testing. With LATZKE as part of the Zwick/Roell Group, we can expand our service offerings in hardness testing," explains Christine Dübler, Director of Sales at Zwick.

LATZKE will become the Sales and Service Center for Zwick hardness products in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Benelux countries, Liechtenstein, and Denmark. In the intermediate term, LATZKE will assume responsibility for Zwick's hardness testing products and their associated services.

"We have found in Zwick the right partner to help us successfully further develop our company and offer our customers an attractive hardness testing product portfolio," says Sascha Latzke, Owner of LATZKE. 

LATZKE will maintain its existing customer relationships as well as retain the strong LATZKE brand.
