2006: bm|t vsells its stake in KTN Kunststoff-Technik Nobitz GmbH, Altenburg
bm|t has sold its 100% stake in KTN to the KAEFER Group from Bremen, thus achieving an attractive return on the invested capital. The successful development of the company, which began under the direction of bm|t as an important supplier to Airbus, is now to be secured and expanded in the long term by a strategic partner, the KAEFER Group.
As part of the sale, far-reaching job guarantees were given for the 200 or so employees and the prospect of new hires was held out. KTN, OLUTEX in Seifhennersdorf/Saxony and KAEFER Aerospace GmbH in Bremen, which was founded at the beginning of 2006, now form the Aerospace division (aerospace). Around 440 staff are employed at the Bremen, Hamburg, Toulouse, St. Nazaire, Nobitz and Seifhennersdorf sites. The annual turnover is around € 40 million. The declared aim is to further expand the business activities in the aerospace industry. By the end of the decade, sales are to be doubled. Nobitz should also benefit from the growth strategy.
