GETEC acquires Infrapark Baselland
The energy services provider GETEC is acquiring Infrapark Baselland AG and its activities from the chemicals company Clariant. GETEC also intends to acquire Novartis’s facilities in the neighbouring Schweizerhalle, thus boosting the site’s attractiveness.
Clariant, Infrapark Baselland AG and GETEC recently signed the agreement for the planned sale to GETEC, announced a statement from Infrapark Baselland AG. According to the terms, the transaction will be completed by the end of the year.
GETEC is also acquiring Novartis’s production and infrastructure facilities in the Schweizerhalle site. The move signals the creation of a “new and diversified industrial park with economic significance for the entire region”, writes the statement.
“We are very pleased to have found in GETEC an owner for Infrapark Baselland AG, which has the necessary know-how to operate, integrate and develop industrial parks. I am convinced that this step will give the Schweizerhalle location and thus the employees an attractive future perspective,” commented Oliver Kinkel, head of region Europe at Clariant, in the statement.
With GETEC as operator, Schweizerhalle will gain competitiveness as a chemical life science park and create better growth opportunities “for new companies operating on the site”. A first company has already signed to move into the Schweizerhalle in the coming year: the chemicals specialist Van Baerle. Following the sale, Clariant will also remain as a tenant in Infrapark Baselland.
