Active Capital Company (ACC) becomes major shareholder of SCHUMAG AG (SCHUMAG). At the end of November 2023, ACC acquired shares worth EUR 4.5 million in SCHUMAG AG, Aachen, as part of a capital increase. With the purchase of additional shares worth EUR 0.8 million, ACC will in future hold 37.3 per cent of the shares and thus be the largest shareholder in a consortium that aims to get the long-established manufacturer of German precision technology back on track.

SCHUMAG is a listed company with around 450 employees whose precision products are "Made in Germany" and exported worldwide. SCHUMAG uses a wide range of manufacturing processes on a production area of around 39,500 square metres and fulfils customer requirements quickly and reliably with the help of over 360 machines.
