Höganäs Group and H.C. Starck Surface Technology & Ceramic Powders (STC) say that they are now under the same market brand of Höganäs.

Höganäs acquired the STC division from H.C. Starck in March 2018 and now has two production units located in Goslar and Laufenburg, Germany.

‘Now that we are truly one company, Höganäs is one of the largest players in the premium segment of the surface coating market, servicing a broad range of industries, but focussing on automotive, oil and gas, mining and construction, energy and aviation,’ said Hans Keller, president of surface and joining technologies at Höganäs.

The company said that it wants to make surface coating a new and strong business leg, next to its metal powder for pressed and sintered components businesses.
