Scandinavian unit of Oerlikon Leybold becomes ‘Low2High Vacuum’


Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum’s Scandinavian business unit has been sold to the unit’s management. The contracts have been effective since October 31, 2009.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum CEO, Dr Andreas Widl, feels the change works well with the company’s current position: “In view of the size and structure of the Scandinavian markets, this step fits best the present focus which entails concentration on faster growing emerging markets in other regions. I am convinced that with the MBO we have found the best solution for all stakeholders involved and that the new management will run the vacuum business successfully.”
