In 2021, the company had sales of approximately EUR 4.4 million and generated an EBITDA of approximately EUR 1.3 million.
“Keymet is a fantastically well-run and professional company, with a very competent and driven management. They work with the most demanding customers in advanced industries such as the aerospace industry, which places the highest demands on precision in manufacturing and tight tolerances. We have been very impressed since we first started the dialogue with the company and are now looking forward to continuing on the established path and reaching new heights. I am also very happy that the sellers have chosen to reinvest part of the purchase price in Eitrium, therefore has a continued ownership interest and will also be part of our continued journey in Eitrium.” says Per Brugge, CEO of Eitrium.
