The acquisition of Danish Steel, which specialises in precision fabrication of stainless steel and aluminium products, would help Sicagen to exploit opportunities in high-end precision steel and metal fabrication business. Sicagen will acquire 100 per cent equity stake from the existing promoters, in a phased manner, said the company in a statement on Monday.
