SOP-Metal has acquired the entire share capital of V-S Mikromekaniikka Oy in Turku. The deal was completed in autumn 2018.
As a result of the acquisition, SOP-Metal Group’s machining services have expanded to include the manufacture of precision components and sub-assemblies. In practice, we can now machine parts measuring only a few millimeters in size.
The customer base of V-S Mikromekaniikka is from the ship, train, automotive, electronics and pharmaceutical industries. The materials used in the products are mainly aluminum and various plastics.
The acquisition offers new benefits to SOP-Metal Group customers, especially in terms of subcontracting services. For example, expertise in precision mechanics enables the manufacture of more demanding and diversified insulation products for the electrical and energy industries.
“This was a consistent step in our strategy to make a determined effort to increase our service offering,” says Pekka Särkiniemi, SOP-Metal’s co-owner.
The SOP-Metal Group wants to provide its customers, as widely as possible, with subcontracting services that require high material know-how. In practice, this means more advanced product manufacturing packages under the same roof.
