Nanogate receives major million-euro order in systems business with enhanced plastic components

(PresseBox) (Quierschied-Göttelborn, ) Order volume worth more than EUR 20 million – Complete responsibility for system, from design to enhanced components for luxury vehicles – Transaction for stake in plastics specialist Goletz successfully completed

Nanogate AG, a leading international integrated systems provider for high-performance surfaces, is progressing with the expansion of its business with enhanced plastic components faster than expected: The Group has received a multi-year order from a luxury car manufacturer. The order volume is worth more than EUR 20 million. Nanogate will start delivering high-quality interior parts for the centre console of an SUV in 2017. Meanwhile, the company has also formally completed its acquisition of a majority stake in the plastics specialist Walter Goletz GmbH, as per its announcement in April 2016.

Nanogate AG’s CEO, Ralf Zastrau, commented: “Enhanced plastic components with the highest optical quality are an important driver of sales for Nanogate. The expansion of our business is going significantly faster than we initially expected thanks to the major new order. The project will begin in 2017 and will considerably strengthen our market position. The agreement with a leading luxury car manufacturer also demonstrates how good our strategic alignment is. Our expertise and strong mass production business is based on three pillars, which we have continuously strengthened in recent years: Materials engineering, production and process engineering as well as product and components engineering. Our subsidiaries Vogler and Goletz are implementing the new project together – a significant milestone for our new equity holding.”

Expansion of business with enhanced components

Nanogate will benefit from the expansion of its value chain with the major new order. As an innovative partner to major companies, Nanogate provides a full range of services – from developing and designing the component, to manufacturing the high-tech component, right through to multifunctional enhancement. The complex component for the centre console of an SUV consists of several elements, such as panels and control elements for the air conditioning system.

Transaction to acquire majority stake in Goletz completed

Meanwhile, Nanogate has also completed the transaction to acquire a 75 % stake in the plastics specialist Walter Goletz GmbH, after the transaction was agreed upon back in April.

The transaction expands Nanogate’s system expertise in the area of high-demand plastic components. The new equity holding has a strong market position especially in smaller and mid-size, design-oriented plastic components, while the subsidiary Plastic-Design has until now been specialised in larger components for the automotive industry, for example. Goletz also has expertise in metallisation and surface enhancement. Goletz supplies customers in the automotive, electronics and domestic appliances industries. In addition, Goletz operates in the area of medical technology applications via a subsidiary.
