Materna takes over product group

With its integrated passenger services (IPS), Materna is among the world’s leading providers of CUSS-based kiosk, web and mobile check-in solutions.

Hanover-based Höft & Wessel AG has acted as a hardware partner and kiosk supplier since Materna started in the IPS sector. As part of a new strategic direction, Höft & Wessel has now handed the ‘’ product group to Materna. This means that all stationary check-in systems activities for customers in the passenger flight sector are now bundled at Materna.

As of 1 April 2013, Materna took over the brand rights, the production, the sales and the maintenance of check-in and self bag drop machines. This is purely a functional succession and not a takeover or partial takeover. For new and existing customers, such as Lufthansa and Air Berlin, Materna IPS will become the contact for all questions relating to new orders and maintenance.

With this takeover, Materna IPS can offer its customers an increased range of services, from hardware procurement through software implementation through operation of check-in systems. This makes the company a real all-round service provider for airlines and airports and allows it to build on its existing good market position.

Materna is one of the most renowned suppliers of self service systems for airports and airlines in the world.
