With economic effect to January 1, 2014, GEA successfully concluded the sale of its Heat Exchangers Segment to funds advised by Triton as planned.

Within the framework of its GEA 2020 group strategy, GEA had decided to more strongly focus its portfolio to further strengthen its position as leading system provider for the food industry and other exacting process industries. With the divestment of the segment, GEA increases its food processing technology share to over 70 percent of group revenue.
