Mekoprint has just bought 67% of the shares in Microturn, which specialises in micro turning and is among the leading companies in the field in Northern Europe. The investment in Microturn means that Mekoprint will be the largest development partner and supplier of micro components in the Nordics.
The micro manufacturing market is enjoying strong growth due to the demand for smaller and smaller products, and even though Mekoprint already has a large production of micro components, the purchase of shares in Microturn will considerably strengthen the company.
“Mekoprint and Microturn are an extremely good match. Over the past 25 years, Microturn has specialised exclusively in micro turning technology and is in a league of its own in the field. Together, we are now the largest partner for – and supplier of – micro components in the Nordics, with a turnover of over DKK 100 million based on a unique combination of production technologies. At the same time, the investment in Microturn is an important part of Mekoprint’s strategy for both organic growth and acquisitions in the coming years”, CEO Anders Kold says.
The name has been expanded to Mekoprint Microturn, and the current CEO, Claus Geleff, will continue as CEO of the company, which he also still co-owns alongside Jens Enevoldsen and John Bertran Clemmensen.
