With approximately 240 employees worldwide - including around 150 at the Würselen location - CemeCon AG produces high performance coatings for cutting tools and components, and provides a comprehensive range of accompanying services. In addition, CemeCon is present with production facilities and licence partners in the USA, China and the Czech Republic. With support from the HANNOVER Finanz Group, which joined the specialist for high-performance coating of metal-cutting tools as a minority shareholder, CemeCon was able to make significant progress with its economic recovery after several difficult years. The private equity company specializing in medium-sized businesses assisted above all in optimizing liabilities during the four years of partnership. In recent years, the company has continuously developed better than planned, and has been able to buy its shares back.
