Leading electrical component manufacturer

Elektrokoppar is a leading winding wire and copper wire rod manufacturer, supplying electrical components to customers across Europe.

Elektrokoppar’s customers are mainly manufacturers of transformers, engines, generators, white goods and vehicles. The group has manufacturing facilities in Sweden, Germany, Poland and China and refines approximately 200,000 tons of copper and aluminum per year.

Elektrokoppar is headquartered in Helsingborg, and has around 600 employees. The Company was acquired via the IK 1994 Fund in November 1997 from ABB, and subsequently sold to Liljedahlsbolagen in June 2007.

Our Value Creation Strategy

During our ownership, we worked alongside the management team to:

  • Participate in industry restructuring;
  • Integrate the winding wire business activities; and
  • Implement internal efficiency measures.
