The division is a global market leader in tool steel and has a leading position in high-speed steels and special forgings.
When I bought the DOT GmbH in 2007, I met Blue Corporate Finance as the sell side advisor on the other side of the table. Since then I decided to have Blue Corporate Finance as a support for my next transaction. Now, six years later, I am convinced that my impression at that time and the subsequent decision was the right one.
