Along with the company’s financial recovery, the IMO Group succeeded in gaining an equity investor at the end of the fiscal year on June 30, 2016. CMP Capital Management-Partners, headquartered in Berlin, agreed to join IMO as a minority shareholder resulting in near full repayment of debt, a significantly strengthened balance sheet, and a solid and healthy basis for the future.
IMO Group has been successful in securing and steadily expanding its high technological standing. Thanks to superior quality standards, longevity and reliability of IMO products in many different and demanding applications, the company has been one of the world’s leading suppliers of slewing rings and slew drives for years.
With this stable foundation, IMO will continue its push for international expansion, healthy growth, and increased competitiveness while meeting the global challenges of the market in the future.
