Mikroponent has its roots in the graphics industry. The company was founded in Värnamo, Sweden in 1973 and is a pioneer of etching in Scandinavia. It would be decades before any competition arose. We are still one of the few players in Europe to offer this type of etching technique to produce functional and decorative metal products. The company was privately owned until 1979, after which it was run by Smålands Invest, Finnveden Invest and, most recently, Procuritas until 2005. Mikroponent has been privately owned since then.
