In addition, Tribelt will open up a new market for Lesjöfors with conveyor belt applications.”

The sellers and Managing Directors, René Spoelder and René Frielink, commented on the transaction: “We are happy for the company to become a part of a group specialized in springs and pressings. We also appreciate the decentralized structure of Lesjöfors and are looking forward to staying on and continuing to develop the company further.”
