Mid Europa buys DISA business

Central and Eastern European investor Mid Europa Partners has bought DISA, a Czech Republic-based metal moulding specialist, from Procuritas Capital Investors, a Nordic buyouts house.

DISA produces moulding and metal surface preparation equipment, and has production units in its home nation as well as Denmark, India and China, with 1,400 employees on its books. Procuritas, which has offices in Stockholm and Copenhagen, acquired DISA in April 2005.

Kerim Turkmen, associate director of Mid Europa said: “The acquisition of DISA is consistent with our strategy of investing in businesses with strong industry track records and operating in markets with attractive growth prospects. Combined with our existing portfolio company the Wheelabrator Group, DISA will be able to enhance its service offering to its global customer base.”
