Portfolio Changes

Portfolio Changes The portfolio of Oerlikon is subjected to a regular optimization process. Here you will find an overview of the acquisitions and divestments of our company as well as changes in major investments.

All operating units of Oerlikon introduce their own specific added value to the Oerlikon Group. In this way, we ensure that the Group's total value is greater than the sum of its individual components. We examine the composition of our portfolio on an ongoing basis based on strategic, operational and technological criteria. When we detect gaps, we are prepared to take opportunities presented to us through acquisitions. On the other hand, we may come to the conclusion that individual business deals are more likely to succeed in another form.
