NORD Holding’s Participation

As part of a succession solution, NORD Holding acquired WEMAS in 2011 from the founder. Key milestones were the successful development of a management team, improvement of operational performance, as well as innovations in products, processes, and services. The company was sold to the financial investor Gimv and to the management in 2017.

NORD Holding was always a committed and competent partner for us, who reliably supported us in achieving our common goals.
