STC is an exciting company with attractive growth potential and a good strategic fit for Höganäs. STC’s broad product portfolio and strong trademarks will expand our existing product portfolio and add significant product development capabilities and know-how to Höganäs. The acquisition of STC also enables us to deliver to new customer segments within aerospace and adds a complementary geographic fit with STC’s strong presence in Europe in addition to our strong geographical presence in Asia and Americas. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues to Höganäs and to collectively work towards achieving our targets and cement our position as the world’s leading manufacturer of metal powders.
“This is a unique process and Metasphere’s plant is top notch. We are excited about making the know-how and technology a part of Höganäs AB.”
“When we have scaled up to industrial production we will go to market with a broad spectrum of products, mainly within additive manufacturing, where there is a large demand for innovative materials.”
This is the first commercialization of our ground-breaking and disruptive technology, Cleanit® EC in Brazil. Now, we can showcase this green solution, establish its CAPEX-OPEX advantages, demonstrate the ease of running the system, and prove our ability to provide a site-specific solution.
“With Fredrik Emilson, Höganäs will have a CEO with a broad knowledge of the company’s customer base, products and organization. He has a documented ability to deliver healthy growth and good results and is a strong leader”.
“Rune has the right experience and competence to take on the challenge of building Höganäs’ brand and expand our market shares in industrial applications.”
