I feel like we are now much closer to achieving this goal together with my most welcomed new partners.”

"Therefore we never hesitated to transform our business relationship into a partnership. We have known our friends in Lindgens for a long time, now we will be team mates. I personally believe that we will form a strong team with our colleagues at Lindgens."
"This acquisition of the majority stake of Server Boya is in line with our strategy to grow both organically and by acquisitions in order to create a very focused supplier for the metal deco industry," said Peter Koivula, chairman of Lindgens MDC&I.
