Nolato

Nolato

Active and global subcontractor

Nolato develops and manufactures products in polymer materials such as plastic, silicone and TPE for leading customers within medical technology, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, telecom, automotive and other selected industrial sectors. Over the years Nolato has strengthened its strategic move from being a manufacturer of components to customer specification to being a solutions-oriented advanced partner for its customers. Sales were SEK 6.7bn in 2017 with an EBITA margin of 11.5%. Nolato has a global presence with only 18% of sales from Sweden.

Economic and business cycle fluctuations. As a subcontractor Nolato is highly dependent on customers’ decisions and commercial performance such as postponed or cancelled projects or product life spans.

Attracting new customers in growth areas as seen in VHP (Vaporiser Heating Products). As customers’ volume prospers so does Nolato’s. Owing to its wide-ranging expertise across different areas of technology, many industries and niches are potential customers. Also, value-added acquisitions are opportunities on the back of a very solid balance sheet and high cash conversion.
