Mutares acquired the bridge and building construction specialist Donges SteelTec from Japanese Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems in October 2017. Kalzip Group was acquired by Donges Group as a strategic add-on in October 2018 from Tata Steel Europe. The add-on Acquisition of Normek Oy was finalized in February 2019 and was bought from Intera Fund I Ky and private shareholders. In March 2019 the FDT was aquired as third strategic add-on for the Group from a private holder. After aquiring Norsilk in 2015 by Mutares, Norsilk was integrated into the Donges Group in June 2019 to further enhance product offerings and sales networks. The takeover of Ruukki Building Systems was completed in April 2020. NORDEC combines the strengths of the predecessors Normek and Ruukki Building Systems.
Following the fifth add-on acquisition (Nordec), Donges aims to achieve further growth and consolidate its very good position in the European market. The cornerstones of this strategy are the realization of synergies through the joint processing of the existing customer portfolio and existing sales channels, as well as the development of Northern European markets in the areas of façade solutions and steel construction.
