ARQIS advises TAMURA CORPORATION on acquisition of Elsold


ARQIS has advised TAMURA CORPORATION on the acquisition of all shares in Elsold GmbH & Co. KG through their holding company TAMURA DEUTSCHLAND GmbH.

Elsold GmbH & Co. KG, a manufacturer of soldering products, particularly for the automotive and electronics industries, with a long-standing history was acquired by Endurance Capital in 2012 as part of JL Goslar Group. It was relocated in 2013 to a new state-of-the-art facility in Ilsenburg, in the German State of Saxony-Anhalt, with the strategic goal of developing Elsold into a stand-alone company, independent of JL Goslar Group, and strengthening its long-term market position.

TAMURA CORPORATION is one of the leading Japanese manufacturers of electronic components and chemicals for industrial applications. For TAMURA CORPORATION the acquisition of Elsold, a company with a broad customer base and a strong reputation in Europe, will create a new platform for further expanding its European operations.
