2006: bm|t sells its shares in KTN Kun­st­stofftech­nik Nob­itz GmbH, Altenburg

bm|t has gen­er­ated an attrac­tive return on invest­ment with the trade sale of its 100%-participation stake in KTN Kun­st­stofftech­nik Nob­itz to the KAEFER Group, located in Bre­men. KTN’s suc­cess­ful devel­op­ment, which began under the man­age­ment of bm|t / TIB, is now secured for the long term and will be expanded with its strate­gic part­ner, KAEFER Group.

A note­wor­thy aspect of the acqui­si­tion is the far-reach­ing guar­an­tee on the part of KAEFER Group of 200 exist­ing jobs in Altenburg in addi­tion to the prospec­tive cre­ation of new jobs. The aero­space busi­ness area is now con­sti­tuted by KTN, OLUTEX (Seifhen­ners­dorf, Sax­ony), and KAEFER Aero­space GmbH (founded in early 2006 in Bre­men). A work­force of approx­i­mately 440 is employed on sites in Bre­men, Ham­burg, Toulouse, St. Nazaire, Nob­itz and Seifhen­ners­dorf. Annual turnover is approx­i­mately €40 mil­lion and  is expected to dou­ble by the end of the decade. The avowed aim is to fur­ther expand avi­a­tion busi­ness activ­i­ties. Nob­itz is also set to profit from this growth strategy.
