Hexagon AB, a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation solutions, has today divested the company EBP Olofström AB to Nävrabäcken AB. EBP is reported within the business area Other Operations.

EBP manufactures car body components for several of Europe’s leading automotive manufacturers. The company is specialised in the qualified production supply of low volumes for both series production and the aftermarket.

In 2012 EBP reported net sales of approximately 23 MEUR with a negative EBIT margin of approximately -5 per cent. EBP represents less than one per cent of Hexagon’s net sales.
