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.
Microturn has 22 employees at a state-of-the-art factory in Humlebæk, and it is often the only supplier on the Nordic market that can produce a high volume of complex items with a diameter down to 0.1 mm. The ability to manufacture very small elements with high efficiency and extreme precision is absolutely essential when supplying components for hearing aids, robots and medical equipment, etc.
“Microturn is enjoying strong growth and needs a partner who can contribute to continued collaboration with both local small businesses and large international companies. In Mekoprint, we have found a partner with a special understanding of combining great managerial independence with shared customers, culture and all the administrative support we need”, says Claus Geleff, CEO of Microturn.
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.
In connection with the acquisition, Microturn becomes part of the Mekoprint Chemigraphics division, which will change its name to Micromechanics. Micromechanics’ existing production of micro components in Støvring includes etching, fine punching, microlaser cutting and micro milling. In addition, micro turning is also performed in Støvring, e.g. in connection with other processes.
