MGG strengthens its position in the European market of high-precision aluminum components with the acquisition of Eurotech Group

Tegelen, 21 February 2018, MGG Group B.V. (“MGG”), the specialist in complex, high-precision aluminum sand casting and subassemblies, announces the acquisition of Eurotech Group B.V. (“Eurotech”). The customer base of both companies is highly complementary, further expanding the client proposition, from a commercial, as well as a technological and geographical perspective.

Eurotech, with sites in Blerick (The Netherlands), Třešť (Czech Republic) and Schwäbisch Gmund (Germany) is, like MGG, a specialist in complex, high-quality aluminum sand casting and (sub)-assemblies. The most important customers of Eurotech are active in the robotic-, medical-, energy- and heating industries.

With this acquisition, MGG will have consolidated pro-forma annual revenues of approximately € 250 million, with around 1,600 employees across 8 locations in 4 countries. The acquisition of Eurotech aligns perfectly with MGG’s growth strategy. This is the second acquisition since Parcom Capital joined MGG as a majority shareholder in February 2017, after acquiring the high-tech company CSA Herzogenburg from Austria in December 2017.

Bart-Jan van den Boogaart, CEO of MGG, states: “We are pleased to be able to welcome Eurotech Group to the MGG-family. The customer base of Eurotech is fully complementary to the rest of the MGG-group. As a result, the client proposition is being expanded further, commercially, as well as technologically and geographically. The employees and the businesses of Eurotech as well as those of the rest of the MGG-group have specific qualities which can greatly reinforce each other. This further strengthens our leadership position within the aluminum casting industry.”

Eric Lamkin, CEO of Eurotech Group, will remain responsible for heading the Eurotech companies and is looking forward to the collaboration: “The market for aluminum sand casting in Europe is developing rapidly. The larger players become stronger and are growing, also due to consolidation. The combination of Eurotech and MGG creates a large foundry with an even better market position in Europe, playing an increasingly leading role in the aluminum casting industry.
