PartnerTech to Manufacture Euro Coining Presses

The agreement involves responsibility for all production, as well as testing of a large number of complete coining presses. The estimated value of the agreement is SEK 25 million.

PartnerTech has a proven track record of professional expertise and great flexibility - both of which are extremely important to us."

It's also exciting to be part of the revolution that the changeover to the Euro is bringing about." Production is slated to start during August at PartnerTech's plant in Ljungby.
