Alara-Lukagro, a Dutch maker of noise control solutions for a variety of sectors including power generation and marine, is now part of the IPCOM group.
In a statement Alara-Lukagro said it has experienced significant growth in recent years. Turnover has increased significantly and the organization has become larger and more internationally active.

“Joining the IPCOM Group is the perfect next step to fully exploit the potential of Alara-Lukagro. As the Group, especially Atis International, largely shares the same business DNA, we have all the elements for a strong growth and future together”; says André Hameete, chief executive officer (ceo)and owner of Alara-Lukagro.
“We are very pleased to welcome Alara-Lukagro into the IPCOM family. The deal is a perfect fit as Atis International, and Alara-Lukagro are largely complementary. Atis International has built a strong position over the years in acoustic, thermal and fire resistant insulation materials, while Alara-Lukagro has built a strong international position in customized acoustic noise control solutions.
“Our combined product range and market position will strengthen our leading position as expert in noise control in various markets,” said Remco Boerefijn, ceo of IPCOM.
With a production facility in Groot Ammers, Alara-Lukagro manufactures products such as sound-insulating doors, acoustic enclosures, sound-insulating walls, louvres and silencers tailored to the customer’s needs.
