Rotometal completes management buyout

Rotometal has completed the management buyout from Highlander Partners

Polish magnetic cylinders, printing cylinders, anvils, and rotary cutting units specialist, Rotometal, has completed the management buyout from Highlander Partners, which had the controlling interest in the company since 2017.

‘As a business, we'd like to thank Highlander Partners for its support and trust in us since 2017. Highlander Partners invested heavily in new and innovative products, expanding manufacturing capabilities and building a new international sales team with direct coverage for key markets across Europe, the US, and Asia to get to this point,’ said the company in a statement. ‘We'd also like to thank all of our customers and partners across the world who have helped us to grow into the company we are now.’

‘We are very pleased to complete this transaction and happy that the CEO, Grzegorz Dołbniak, is able to become the controlling shareholder,’ commented Jeff L. Hull, president and CEO of Highlander. ‘We have been impressed with him and his team's performance over the past three years and have invested heavily in the company during our ownership period to position Rotometal for continued growth and success going forward. It is very satisfying to see such a successful outcome.’

Currently, Rotometal employs a team of 130 people working three shifts at the 5,000 sqm manufacturing and office space in Świebodzin. In 2008 the company signed a contract with Gerhardt, a leading manufacturer of tools for the printing industry based in Denmark. Since then, it started manufacturing magnetic cylinders, printing cylinders, anvils, rotary cutting units as well as numerous other tools used in the printing business.
