The Müller-Steinag Group, based in Rickenbach in the Swiss canton of Lucerne, is the new strategic partner of drainage specialist Birco from Baden-Baden. Birco GmbH will be taken over in its entirety, including its subsidiaries and all locations, and integrated into the family-owned company. The transaction, which does not require any further official approvals, is to be completed before the end of this year.

Thus, from now on, two specialists for the material concrete will bundle their professional know-how in order to pursue a joint, sustainable strategy. Birco will remain completely self-sufficient in the future and will continue to exist as an experienced, strong brand. As two family-owned companies established in the market, it is of particular importance to BIRCO and Müller-Steinag to retain familiar contact partners and expand long-term customer relationships.


The Müller-Steinag Group currently employs around 1150 people. Like Birco, the owner-managed, independent and autonomous Swiss family business was founded in 1927. The now diversified group is active in the areas of concrete products, natural building materials, recycling, waste disposal and hydraulic engineering, as well as a number of other business areas. The Müller-Steinag Group also includes Creabeton, Birco's exclusive distribution partner in Switzerland for many years.
