May 2019 - Producing expanded metal no longer fits ROTO's strategy. That is why ROTO has decided to sell its company Métal Déployé in Montbard, France. In close consultation with the management of Métal Déployé, ROTO started looking for a new owner and found one in Groupe Drouault Industries. This group consists of companies that specialise, amongst others, in the production, engineering and sales of perforated metal for industry, construction and architecture.
Expanded metal and perforated metal complement each other seamlessly and fit into Drouault's strategy. Therefore, ROTO is pleased to announce that the Métal Déployé shares have been sold to Groupe Drouault Industries as of 27 May 2019 and Métal Déployé will be able continue its positive development in the architectural market.
Although ROTO no longer produces expanded metal itself, ROTO continues to sell expanded metal through Staco. Thanks to the continuation of the collaboration with Métal Déployé, delivery of expanded metal is also guaranteed in the future.
