Parker Hannifin Corp. of Mayfield Heights has acquired Jäger Automobil-Technik GmbH and Jäger Automotive Polska Sp. z.o.o. from Hannover, Germany-based Arnold Jäger Holding GmbH, the company announced in a news release.
Terms of the acquisitions were not disclosed.
The release called the Jäger group “a pioneer in rubber to plastic direct bonded sealing systems for automotive markets and a leading developer of two-component (2K) direct injection molding technology,” noting that the two acquired businesses' products are used to “seal and protect” automotive systems components.
Jäger makes parts used in auto interiors, door systems, exterior and under-the-hood applications.
