The company serves a diverse customer base of globally active oil and gas companies from Western and Central Europe, for projects in the North Sea, Africa and the Middle East.

Eupec employs around 70 people and generated sales in 2019 of approximately EUR 14 million.
Since the takeover by Mutares, Eupec has successfully completed a turnaround program and sold its German subsidiary resulting in a capital multiple of ca. 17x for Mutares. Today, the company follows a growth strategy including continued penetration of its market segment that showed significant results in 2019. Operationally, one key project involved boosting productivity at the pipe coating plants. For 2020, Eupec will continue to position itself as a successful niche supplier in a global market. The company plans to explore strategic alternatives for its further development in 2020.
