SMT Scharf AG examines investment in electronics specialist

Hamm, March 27, 2019 - SMT Scharf AG (WKN 575198, ISIN DE0005751986) is at an advanced stage of negotiations regarding an investment in ser elektronik GmbH based in Möhnesee. With this planned investment, SMT Scharf is aiming to consistently pursue its corporate strategy and expand its portfolio to include valuable expertise in the electronics and controls area. SMT Scharf has already been working for more than 20 years with the electronics specialist, which develops and produces customer-specific electronic controls and components for SMT Scharf's transport solutions.
