adapting to market’s demand through a more future-focused portfolio

adapting to market’s demand through a more future-focused portfolio

Our global ability to provide worldwide active key accounts with traceability along the supply chain gives us a competitive edge. We acquired three companies during the year that strengthen our portfolio and enable us to offer our customers more value-added services. In Europe, we acquired a specialist in reel-to-reel surface treatment of metals, enabling a reduced use of raw materials.

In North America we acquired a specialist in corrosion protection surface technologies for the automotive, general industries and aerospace end markets, with service locations strategically positioned near many OEMs in the southeastern region. We also acquired a specialist in complex precision stamping, which will help us expand our key accounts in the USA and Mexico. 

There is an increase in global requirements amongst customers. By having a more diverse and future-focused portfolio, we will be able to adapt to the market’s fastchanging demands. The investments we have made over the last few years have created a strong foundation for future growth.
