Pure precision since 1956
Precomp Solutions was founded in 1956 as Maskin-Elektro by Paul Sekely in Ulricehamn, Sweden. Maskin-Elektro’s first business was to wind electrical motors for car windscreen wipers. During a business trip to Switzerland Paul first got in contact with fineblanking technology. Soon after the company was assigned to make fineblanking tools to the then existing Svenska Dataregister (Sweda) and Hugin in Stockholm that had started using the fineblanking technology during the early 1960s for components for mechanical cash registers, adding machines, and the like.
1966 The first fineblanking press was purchased, adding to the current equipment of conventional stamping presses. The fineblanking business then grew rapidly and the technology eventually became the core business and has been so ever since.
1976 Paul Sekely sold Maskin-Elektro to Rotima Investment (presently Consilium). Soon after the business was extended to offering press guard systems, but it was divested already in 1985.
Literally over a night of 1977 almost the entire demand of fineblanked components to Sweda and Hugin vanished, in what became a technology shift when cheap Japanese electronic machines took over the market.
The 1980s therefore was spent to increase sales towards the automotive industry. The market segment eventually grew rapidly for the company along with the rising demands on automotive safety.
In 1996 Turon was acquired, which had its background in Sweda, with fineblanking and conventional stamping operations. The year after, Turon and Maskin-Elektro were merged to become Consilium Components. In 1998 the fineblanking operations of Silva Production was acquired and Consilium Components became the sole company in Scandinavia with fineblanking as core competence.
During 2005 Precomp took a step out in Europe and established a plant in Sofia, Bulgaria. The plant focus was (and still is) fineblanking with subsequent assembly operations.
2007 Consilium chose to portion out the company to its shareholders and the company was listed on NASDAQ OMX First North in Stockholm under the current company name Precomp Solutions AB.
During 2011 Precomp Holding AB came in as new majority shareholder.
