KLINGEL was established in 1986 and has become a leading EU manufacturer of high-precision, complex machined parts made from high-grade types of steel and titanium. Since Halder completed the MBO, KLINGEL has become a successful supplier to the medtech industry by focusing its business model on this market, an extensive rebranding project and a pro-active go-to-market approach.
The new strategy was supported by substantial capital expenditure for more capacity and extensions of the firm’s value chain as prototyping, automatic cleaning and electro-polishing were added. Driven by organic growth and the acquisition of Josef Ganter Feinmechanik in 2016, sales revenues increased by ca. 55% and revenue contribution from medtech clients grew to 70%. Halder sold KLINGEL to IK Investment Partners in 2018.
